Description The entire genome of the white shark has now been decoded in detail. The white shark genome was also compared to gthe genomes of other vertebrates including the giant whale shark and humans. The white shark has a genome that is one and half time larger than the human genome. Very large-bodied animals do not get cancer more often than humans. They have evolved superior cancer-protective abilities. The genetic innovations discovered in genome stability genes in the white and whale shark could be adaptations facilitating the evolution of their large bodies and long lifespans. The genome is revealing evolutionary adaptations...

A more powerful biological offset would be to use kelp forests. Kelp can grow thirty times faster than trees. 40% of the world’s land is used for agriculture. We will need to use 9% of the oceans to offset global warming emissions. Every long term plan for global warming has massive negative emissions beyond 50-100 years. Negative emissions means pulling CO2 out of the atmosphere. This happens now by growing...
