We discuss and comment on the role agriculture will play in the containment of the CO2 problem and address protocols for terraforming the planet Earth.
A model farm template is imagined as the central methodology. A broad range of timely science news and other topics of interest are commented on.

Just what is this? To start with, if the structure is solid stone or
concrete, the weight would have produced a much deeper damage strip
along the apparent slide path. If it is hollow then why are we
seeing edge damage and little indication of penetration? It it is
metallic, why is it not obvious?
I think we can dismiss the idea that it was built on land when the
sea level was lower. The build up of sediment is way too low. It is
more in conformance with a recent event. Maybe it will turn out to
be a huge fuel tank caught at sea and bombed though the curved walls
appear to be effort beyond that.
Right now we need some lab work done on those stones and soot at
least. That way we may be able to wake up and discover a simple
The electrical problems suggests that a strong electrical field is
been produced. This is easily tested.
After that and provided the mystery deepens, then the next step will
be to attach grab points onto the device and to actually lift it off
the sea bed and bring it to dry dock.
In the meantime I would like to see research done on WWII losses in
the area. Did the Finns get up to something? Recall that a hollow
concrete structure with bulk heads could make it out to sea before it
sinks when a bomb hits it.
If this were a simple building, there would be little interest while
still failing to understand its locale. Surely we can demonstrate if
it is concrete or not. Maybe the Finns pulled a large fuel tank out
of harms way in order to get storage to a northern port. They
certainly were up to it.
'UFO' at the bottom
of the Baltic Sea 'cuts off electrical equipment when divers get
Object is raised about 10 to 13ft above seabed and curved at the
sides like a mushroom
- Hole is surrounded
by an strange rock formation that expedition team can not explain
- Stones are covered
in something 'resembling soot' which has baffled experts
- Divers say phones
and some cameras switch off when close to the object
The divers exploring a
'UFO-shaped' object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea say their
equipment stops working when they approach within 200m.
Stefan Hogerborn, part of the Ocean X team which is exploring the
anomaly, said some of the team's cameras and the team's satellite
phone would refuse to work when directly above the object, and would
only work once they had sailed away.
He is quoted as
saying: 'Anything electric out there - and the satellite phone as
well - stopped working when we were above the object.
'And then we got away
about 200 meters and it turned on again, and when we got back over
the object it didn’t work.'
Hefty trajectory: The
Swedish diving team noted a 985-foot flattened out 'runway' leading
up to the object, implying that it skidded along the path before
stopping but no true answers are clear
Diver Peter Lindberg
said: 'We have experienced things that I really couldn’t imagine
and I have been the team's biggest skeptic regarding these different
kind of theories.
'I was kind of
prepared just to find a stone or cliff or outcrop or pile of mud but
it was nothing like that, so for me it has been a missing experience
I must say.'
Member Dennis Åsberg
said: 'I am one hundred percent convinced and confident that we have
found something that is very, very, very unique.
'Then if it is a
meteorite or an asteroid, or a volcano, or a base from, say, a U-boat
from the Cold War which has manufactured and placed there - or if it
is a UFO...
'Well honestly it has
to be something.'
The quotes were first
reported at NDTV. The Mail Online has reached out to the Ocean X
team for clarification.
The team did get some
pictures, such as these soot-covered rocks that encircled an
egg-shaped hole which went into the object at its center, and have no
idea what any of it means
No clarification: The
divers made their sonar discovery public but waited a year to make
the dive because they had to gather enough funding and base off of
Landing spot: The
exact coordinates of the object have not been released, but it is
confirmed to be somewhere at the bottom of the Botnia Gulf in the
Baltic Sea between Finland and Sweden
The object was first
found in May last year, but because of a lack of funding and bad
timing, they have were not able to pull a team together to see for
themselves - just the strange, metallic outline, and a similar
disk-shaped object about 200 metres away. - [ This could be the broken of part of the structure we are seeing]
During their visit,
the team saw a 985-foot trail that they described 'as a runway or
a downhill path that is flattened at the seabed with the object at
the end of it'.
As it was before the
recent dive, the story behind the object is anyone's guess, from a
'plug to the inner world' to the Millennium Falcon ship from Star
While the Ocean
Explorer team is understandably excited about their potentially
earth-shattering find, others are slightly more sceptical and are
questioning the accuracy of the sonar technology.
In the past, such
technology has confused foreign objects with unusual- but natural -
Part of the trouble
they face, however, is that they have no way of telling what is
inside the supposed cylinder- whether it is filled with gold and
riches or simply aged sediment particles.
They're hoping for the
former, and history seems to be in their favour.
The Baltic Sea is a
treasure trove for shipwreck hunters, as an estimated 100,000 objects
are thought to line the cold sea's floor.
The company have
created a submarine that they hope will appeal to tourists and
wannabe shipwreck hunters who will pay to take a trip down to the
bottom of the Baltic Sea to see for themselves.
A further dive will
take place in the coming weeks.
