Geoengineering the High Seas

Would adding iron to the Southern Ocean's Drake Passage promote planktonic growth that in turn would help reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and curb global warming? Researchers on the high seas are considering the options in a post on Wired's Science blog. "While we concern ourselves with the elements above water, iron-seeding proponents are gearing up for a storm over events below water. If they're right, this region could be key to effective climate-change mitigation."
