The people that want to increase carbon storage by putting more iron salts into the ocean to inclease the growth of plankton need to take this effect into account.

I also have a theory I have been working on (w/my friend Steven Hawkings) That tornadoes,Hurricanes,dust devils,fire tornadoes,water spouts and Black holes are all the same...they are vortexes that are caused and feed/run on HEAT...You can follow the track of any of the moving manifestations towards the hottest spot on the map and sucks heat from surrounding areas to continue existing....even stationary black holes form over the hottest part of univers such as a star nursery....Cold air on top of or around them is heavier/denser and FALLS into the least dense/hottest area event point where it starts...You could used heat to vacuum with, or run some sort of engine like the Sterling engine...which uses hot and cold...we need to investigate if nuclear heat could be used to make a vortex that is a by product from HEAT and could power a seperate turbine type engine...Sigh some day I will get the mathematics right....but watch were the next hurricane goes will be the warmest least dense area,the path of LEAST RESISTANCE!!!
