VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, June 21 /CNW/ - Planktos Corp. (OTCBB:PLKT) of San Francisco and Vancouver engages in developing and delivering ecorestoration ...

In the post below I linked to one of the scariest headlines, ever.

"The Earth today stands in imminent peril...and nothing short of a planetary rescue will save it from the environmental cataclysm of dangerous climate change. Those are not the words of eco-warriors but the considered opinion of a group of eminent scientists writing in a peer-reviewed scientific journal."

Today I see this press release from Planktos:

Planktos Calls for All Hands on Deck Emergency Response to Prevent Massive Plant Life Extinction in the Worlds Seas

"... This is work that must be done if we are to reverse the apocalyptic collapse of the ocean ecosystem as well as the climate crisis it is helping to accelerate, says Russ George. We are the first responders to a planetary medical emergency.

Planktos work is financed by early-stage institutional investors in the EU and Canada and via its public company status (symbol: PLKT). Planktos pioneering efforts are expected to make the company a leading provider of the most immediate, effective, and inexpensive solutions to global warming, climate change, and ocean collapse. Planktos earns revenue via the climate change carbon offset markets of the EU and other Kyoto Protocol nations. It is also working to assist development of similar markets in the US climate change arena in concert with other organizations that understand the critical importance of ecorestoration activities. The firm expects to offer participants, supporters and investors extremely rewarding new opportunities in the 2007-2008 time frame."

I first came across Planktos a couple months ago while doing a Google search for companies claiming some connection to climate change.

I thought to myself: "A Nevada corporation, headquartered in Vancouver, trading on the Pink sheets, hmmm";
What could possibly go wrong
