“Chalk piles” to cut CO2

By / November 12, 2010

A recent piece in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences discusses geoengineering as a way to manipulate Earth’s climate in order to counteract global warming from greenhouse gas emissions. Using a method described as “enhanced weathering,” researchers claim that piles of chalk could be used to stabilize the climate. The chalk piles could,…
