Cutest Global Warming Solution Ever

Otters.

Cutest global warming solution ever. Well, not like a total solution. But certainly a very neat and nifty one to help with some climate change issues, according to Inhabitat:

“Two researchers from the University of California, Santa Cruz have suggested that sea otters could play a significant role in the fight against global warming. The duo notes that a healthy population of otters would lead to a reduction in sea urchins—which the otters feed on—and thus allow kelp forests to prosper. Kelp is often consumed by sea urchins, but if enabled to grow to maturity the plant could absorb as much as 12 times the amount of CO2 from the atmosphere than it does at its current rates of growth.”
