Letters In Brief
GREEN parties could play the blues to solve global warming: In some places daylight persists much longer than other places and near the Arctic Circle one has very long days in summer and phytoplankton adjusts to this.
Phytoplankton removes huge quantities of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by using green and blue light to flourish. But it is harmed by ultraviolet light.
At night, when there is virtually no ultraviolet light, irradiate the ocean with green and blue light. The lights could be on tall poles on land while people dance on the sand. This would create a tourist attraction.

I ABSOLUTELY loved Casper Lotter’s opinion piece (Weekend Post last week). He wrote about a very serious matter interspersed with comments that had me laughing from “toenail extraction”, “uncontrolled ballistic missile” to “wrecking ball”. My imagination was working overtime and reminded me that sometimes all you can do is laugh, to keep yourself from crying.
