The article reports on the first round of venture financing of Climos. The San Francisco, California-based startup collected $3.5 million from the financing which will be used to fund an Environmental Impact Assessment and a series of science workshops with research organizations. The company plants to seed the ocean with iron through Ocean Iron Fertilization, which will promote the growth of carbon-consuming phytoplankton.
