I still say that thing needs to be turned into massive amounts of compost. They could already have solar powered harvesting boats out there, bringing to areas other than where it’s heading. High in phosphorus and nitrogen? You mean two the biggest commercial fertilizers, one of which mostly comes from radioactive mined rock, and the other commercially produced with more fossil fuels than cars run on worldwide? But nah, too expensive, and I’m sure there’s some rare tiny shrimp living it in that they can’t mess it up.
They’ve spent all this time watching it and bemoaning the cleanup costs and tourism loss once it hits, without any thought of how to make it useful, well before it hits as well as after. Bah.
