Entertaining video on CO2 rise and photosynthetic bacteria from SOEST

I learned about plants and photosynthesis in grade school (many many many many years ago). In college I learned about phyto-plankton - single celled plant plankton in the ocean (many many many years ago). Then I learned that the plankton in the ocean created (cycled) about 1/2 of the oxygen on the plante (many years ago).

The fact that photosynthetic bacteria are doing most of this work is slightly more recent and still very cool to me. Go microbes!

Check out this video from our parent department: SOEST at UH - This video was submitted into the Ocean180 Film Challenge. For more information on this, see:
