Weathering (before) the Storm

A vast increase in mollusks and other crustaceans could be a part of the solution to global warming, as they soak up and sequester carbon and nitrogen while deacidifying the oceans.

As both the atmosphere and the seas are near CO2 capacity, anything that will foster carbon sequestration while allowing the ocean to absorb more is welcome.

An inexpensive and abundant mineral called olivine may help speed up the process and tests are currently underway on at least one Caribbean beach.
