I just read another article on this in the Atlantic.

shit.

seems like we need something that could suck nitrogen out of rivers before they empty into the oceans. and it has to be done on a huge scale.

maybe Gulo could invent it.

Profits are booming. Humans first, Earth second (or maybe third).

Does algae growth require nitrogen? We could relocate those solar fuels people to the mouth of the river to grow algae and turn it into fuel on a massive scale. Probably some other unintended consequence I'm not thinking of (other than it being expensive.)

that's what the article said. nitrogen compounds (primarily from plant fertilizers) lead to these algal blooms at river deltas. I assume then that nitrogen scarcity normally limits algal growth.

the algal blooms die off and in the process of decaying, suck oxygen out of the water, choking out marine life.
