...is love, sweet love.

Well, no.

If you take an average sea creature and measure the elements it's made of, you find that it (like everything else) is mostly carbon. But there are also some larger elements in trace amounts, that are in a higher concentration in the creature than in the surrounding environment.

The element that is most over-concentrated like this happens to be phosphorus. Phosphorus is the limiting factor of life: given a source of extra phosphorus, life could find everything else it needs to exist in plenty.

So I would say, what the world needs now is phosphorus. That's the only thing there's just too little of.
