We’ve told you about clothes that can make you invisible. We’ve reported on clothes made from recycled chicken feathers. Soon you’ll be able to wear clothes that protect you from pollution and stop you from catching a cold or the flu.

One way to suck carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, so that it won’t cause global warming, might be to “seed” the oceans with iron that will stimulate blooms of phytoplankton, the microscopic marine plant that converts CO2 into organic matter.

In the Independent, Steve Connor writes about a ship that is going to sail around the Pacific ocean, doing just that. Connor quotes the UN’s Noel Brown as saying, “I cannot overstate the importance of these Planktos pilot projects. If their applied science works as well as the early research indicates, this work will both help restore the neglected oceans and give everyone concerned about global warming truly meaningful hope.”
