UMaine Marine Scientist Blog Interview in India Newspaper

The English-language Deccan Herald in Bangalore, India, has published a New York Times blog that included comments from University of Maine marine scientist Mark Wells about a California businessman who undertook his own ecological experiment, dumping 100 tons of iron dust into the Pacific Ocean in an attempt to create a plankton bloom to biologically remove carbon dioxide from the water and aid the recovery of the local salmon fishery. Wells said what the businessman did “could be described as ocean dumping” and the experiment was “extraordinarily unlikely” to be successful.
