CO2 turned into stone in Iceland in climate change breakthrough

Carbon dioxide has been pumped underground and turned rapidly into stone, demonstrating a radical new way to tackle climate change.

The unique project promises a cheaper and more secure way of burying CO2 from fossil fuel burning underground, where it cannot warm the planet. Such carbon capture and storage (CCS) is thought to be essential to halting global warming, but existing projects store the CO2 as a gas and concerns about costs and potential leakage have halted some plans.

The new research pumped CO2 into the volcanic rock under Iceland and sped up a natural process where the basalts react with the gas to form carbonate minerals, which make up limestone. The researchers were amazed by how fast all the gas turned into a solid – just two years, compared to the hundreds or thousands of years that had been predicted.

Beer has a lot of C02, it's been giving people rock hard abs for centuries, so I have to ask, why didn't they think this up long ago? chuckle.gif

And who says Alice never fucker Sam?

I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971

Now how to solve the CO2 car exhaust problem.

Daddy was a closet homo and big brother was doing mom and the two oldest sisters.

If you want to see Alice's titties swing just take two tube socks, drop a lemon in each, hold them up side by side and gently shake them side to side.
