Geology for Investors: Olivine: The Environmentally “Green” Solution to Climate Change?

"There have been a number of proposed “geo-engineering solutions” to the problem of climate change over the years.  [...] One of the latest attempts at carbon-capture or sequestration involves the chemical properties of an appropriately named olive-green mineral: Olivine."

Angus Ferraros' Blog: Stratospheric aerosol geoengineering and the polar vortex

Blog entry to Ferraro, A. J.; et al. (2014). "Geoengineering by reducing the amount of solar radiation the Earth absorbs has become a hot topic in the last few years. Of all the impacts geoengineering might have on our climate, why on earth should we care about what goes on in the stratosphere, 10 kilometres above our heads? It turns out what goes on up there has a substantial impact on what goes on down here."
