The Whaling Centre
Carbon dioxide is mostly absorbed by the ocean. The ocean collects 2/3 of the global CO2 emissions causing phenomenon such as ocean acidification.
This affects marine mammals, such as humpback whales. Humpback whales are the most highly populated whale in Norway, however whales are still hunted in Norway.
A recent study has proven that whales have the incredible capacity of capturing carbon dioxide in the course of their lives. They can capture 33 tons of CO2 in their average lifespan, my proposal is to take advantage of this straordinary discovery and use the whales as a commodity in order to reduce the levels of CO2 and ban the possibility of hunting whales in Norway. My project consists in a stock exchange of CO2 data, a speculation of global CO2 trading in order to enhance the protection of the whales (seen as an economical source) and reducing the carbon dioxide emissions.
