This document is a group work about Ocean Carbon Dioxide Removal.
As of today, there is done not nearly enough to prevent dramatic consequences of climate change. Ocean carbon dioxide removal shows great potential to be a part of the solution. Scientists argue that cutting the CO2-emissions is not enough to stay clear of enormous climate change. Ocean Carbon Dioxide removal is one of the contributing solutions that can help.
[...] IPCC report finds out that we have 2 and a half years to do it. We don't have the time to find other solutions. Phytoplankton can reproduce in 24 hours. Seaweed is very quick to grow. The government needs to prioritize this. We don't know so much thing, we need to start in small portions, only scientists and not investors because they can try to make profit on it. What would happen if we put too much phytoplankton or too much alkaline in the water. [...]
[...] It is an approach to carbon removal that involves adding alkaline substances to seawater to enhance the ocean's natural carbon sink. These substances could include minerals, such as olivine, artificial substances, such as lime or industrial by-products. Adding alkalinity to the ocean removes carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere through a series of reactions that convert dissolved CO2 into stable bicarbonate and carbonate molecules, which in turn causes the ocean to absorb more CO2 from the air to restore equilibrium.

They contain chlorophyll and need sunlight in order to live and grow so they float in the upper part of the ocean (NOAA, 2021). In the 1980s John Martin, an oceanographer, found out that the world's phytoplankton could absorb stunningly 45-50 billion tons of CO2 and incorporate it into their cell structure (Falkowski, 2012).

[...] Both groups will have 7 minutes to present their argument for or against the statement. No visual aids The theme is debated for 6 minutes by the debaters. The audience can ask questions for 5 minutes. Both debaters will make a closing note of 1 minute. The audience members cast a post-debate vote on the statement (for, against or undecided). Task: Ocean carbon dioxide removal: a necessity for climate action or an additional impact to be avoided for the ocean? [...]
