Geo-engineering with whales

“Whales change the climate. The return of the great whales, if they’re allowed to recover, could be seen as a benign form of geo-engineering. It could undo some of the damage that we’ve done both to the living systems of the sea, and to the atmosphere.”

A quote from George Monbiot’s narration in this little film that explains how whales affect the climate. It’s a remarkable piece of science, and a reminder of how intricately and unexpectedly interconnected our world is. Well worth five minutes of your time on a Monday evening.
