Default The secret on the ocean floor: was the ocean mining boom sparked by a 1970s CIA plot?

(I adapted the headline slightly to fit in the space).

The secret on the ocean floor

A really interesting article from the BBC about the link between current undersea manganese mining, and a CIA mission from the 1970s. It's two stories in one, really. The second part is about undersea mining on thermal vents, and is all a bit depressing (although possibly less depressing than mining on land).

The article is from a few days ago but I only posted it after Steve reminded me by posting something else from the BBC that I'd read and forgotten!
