Question

Chris Smith, Naked Scientists asked:

When will seawater greenhouses be available?

Answer

We put this question to Charlie Paton:

Well, we’ve built three and we’ve got three demonstrators working in different parts of the world and we are planning a fairly large scale commercial operation in Australia which will happen some time, I hope, later next year and we’re working quite intensively on the Sahara forest idea.  We don’t know where we’re going to start but we’re putting the numbers together.
