This article about whale poop is great:

whale poop and climate change

It’s probably the case that anything biological that weighs a lot in aggregate is an important part of our ecosystem. Maybe this is an angle that our puddin’ headed denier fellows might be able to grok?

It has been my experience with aggregate biomass, in making compost, that after a person has undergone hands-on experience (with Hands-On Environmentalism) that the first hand knowledge / skills gained translates into a secure thought in climate change mitigation.  For instance, a permaculture practitioner who creates a microclimate as a food forest on their property which serves multiple functions in producing abundance and in turn contributes to their livelihood has come into the awareness that climate change mitigation isn’t a far fetched idea and might continue on their own volition to make eco-friendly lifestyle choices by practicing conscious consumerism in further support of their success.
