Structurally supported forestation beyond the intertidal opening 40 million HA to forestation, seafood and organic carbon production.
Describe your relationship to the place you’ve selected.
We have an ongoing real estate negotiation for the North Pimco Island with Sarah Chemaly - Estate Agent - Damianos Sotheby's International Realty, 75 Shirley Street, Nassau, Bahamas
Describe the People and Place: Provide information that would be helpful for an outsider who has never been there and may have no context about this Place to better understand the area.
An overview of potential shallows in the Bahamas Seas.
Challenges: Describe the current (2020) and the future (2050) challenges that your food system faces.
The sources of organic carbon flowing into the oceans of the word have been declining. As rivers are dammed and shorelines are protected from erosion removing all vegetation and the near surface are polluted with plastic hampering the organic carbon production. All life in the seas suffer and seafood production for human populations are threatened.
Address the Challenges: Describe how your Vision will address the challenges described in the previous question.
We propose to structurally support marine forestation to produce organic carbon and reduce atmospheric CO2 in the process. This will provide food fuel and structural materials to supply the needs of the future. This project on the Great Bahamas Bank could be an inspiration to hundreds of nations with such shallows and provide the 40 million hectares of forestation needed to solve global warming in our lifetime.
High Level Vision: With these challenges addressed, now provide a high level description of how the Place and the lives of its People will be different than they are now.
Many of these shallows are not now populated but will become home to millions of people as the supporting infrastructure is developed.
Full Vision: How do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future for your Place and People for 2050?
The global potential if in access of 41 million hectares and 302 Gigatons of CO2 reduction.
