人有多大膽,海有多高產

(2008-04-19 08:41:46) 下一個

古人說:人生得一知己足矣。

當初
毛主席大躍進放衛星打三麵紅旗的時候,苦於找不到知己,連樂天宇那樣青梅竹馬的曠世奇才都自慚形穢。

盼星星、盼月亮,盼得深山出太陽。

終於盼來了號稱給洋人也放過衛星的錢同學。

於是就人有多大膽,地就多高產了。

再到後來,連沙產業,草產業、地理產業、特異功能產業,也都蒸蒸日上,群魔亂舞了。

別以為這樣的事情隻有在社會主義初級階段之前的中國才有,前蘇聯有,美國當今就有。

不信就給你說說看。

不是都在擔心溫室氣體全球變暖海嘯風嘯地震外星球碰撞嗎?擔心股市泡沫樓市泡沫通貨膨脹和人民幣不斷升值嗎?

好啦,不用擔心了。

隻要肯動員全世界人民起來大煉鋼鐵,然後把煉出來的鋼鐵象骨灰一樣撒在大海裏,刺激海洋生物的生長:吃的是鐵,吸進去的是二氧化碳,日複一日,年複一年,子子孫孫無窮匱也,一切問題就都解決了。



這可不僅僅是天方夜譚,說一說而已。而是既有理論,又有實踐的。

THE IRON-CLIMATE CONNECTION—Climate records extracted from ice at the Vostok station in Antarctica extend back 400,000 years. They consistently link low atmospheric carbon dioxide levels (top) with low air temperatures (middle), and high levels of iron-rich dust (bottom)—and vice versa. That supports the “iron hypothesis.” (Figure by J.R. Petit, et al., Nature )

真刀真槍,也比試過的。

TESTING THE WATERS—Twelve small-scale experiments over the past decade in several ocean locations (red dots) consistently showed that intentional iron additions do result in phytoplankton blooms that help draw down carbon dioxide from the air. But the experiments have not determined how much carbon is transferred and sequestered in the deep sea, rather than quickly recycled back to the atmosphere.

下麵這位,算是鼻祖。

Biogeochemist John Martin promulgated the “iron hypothesis” in the 1990s, saying that iron in the ocean could stimulate phytoplankton blooms that would help draw carbon dioxide from the air into the ocean and lower global temperatures.

江山代有才人出,各領風騷數十年。

"Give me half a tanker of iron, and I'll give you an ice age" may rank as the catchiest lilac ever uttered by a biogeochemist. The man responsible was the late John Martin, former director of the Moss Landing Marine Laboratory, who discovered that sprinkling iron dust in the right ocean waters could trigger plankton blooms the size of a small city. In turn, the billions of ceils produced might absorb enough heat trap ping carbon dioxide to cool the Earth's warming atmosphere.

人家可比咱們偉大祖國的錢學森院士,晚生了近50年。
