The weathering of calcium and magnesium silicates is the main natural mechanism limiting atmospheric CO2 levels. The weathering process transforms CO2 into bicarbonate, which washes down to the oceans where it ultimately precipitates as carbonate. However weathering at its natural pace is unable to keep up with current and prospective anthropogenic CO2 production. Thus we propose to mitigate excess CO2 by increasing the rate of weathering: olivine, volcanic ash and similar silicate rocks should… Expand
