Scoop. Whales save planet.



Who would of thunk it? Whale shit is saving the planet from biggest ever scare story man made global warming.

Sperm whales offset their carbon footprint by stimulating plant growth with their own faeces, scientists have discovered.

Australian researchers worked out that Southern Ocean sperm whales release about 50 tonnes of iron when they defecate every year.

This stimulates the growth of phytoplankton - which absorb carbon dioxide during photosynthesis.

Phytoplankton are marine plants which are eaten in turn by tiny marine animals - zooplankton -  which are then eaten by larger sea animals.

Must enlarge the pond at FE towers.
