Algae Revolution Looms Large

 Seagriculture EU 2024

D​​​​​W Planet A weighs in for this week’s video with a lesson on algae’s past, present and our very promising ongoing algae revolution.

While we’ve been destroying our environment at an alarming rate, it doesn’t need to be this way. A growing army of farmers, scientists and environmentalists have joined together to develop the potential of this most important and unsung hero of a crop: algae. From plastic, fertilizer, fuel, shoes, and even cow farts — algae can and does help offset the harmful impacts to the health of our planet’s bio-systems. With the growing attention on farming algae as a climate solution, incentives to support CO₂ reduction need to be ramped up as well. It’s time to expect more than just seaweed snacks. Fortunately, the movement is developing quickly.

To learn more about why we’re on the brink of an algae revolution, Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. Here’s a look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change.
