VIDEO: Rock Dust and Biochar as a Strategy for Carbon Sequestration (at SER2011)

RTE has filmed a discussion on the potential role of remineralization to sequester carbon and stabilize the climate. Three prominent speakers participated in the discussion during SER2011, the 4th World Conference on Ecological Restoration in Merida, Mexico: Dr. Goreau, President of the Global Coral Reef Alliance and Coordinator of the UN Commission (SIDSPINST), Ron Larson, an expert on biochar, and Albert Bates, author and director of the Institute for Appropriate Technology.

Today we are publishing the first 8-minute segment, Dr. Tom Goreau speaking on the importance of proper soil management in stabilizing the climate, on using rock dust in combination with biochar as an effective strategy to sequester carbon, and is giving his comments to the presentation of the study done in Panama on the increased growth of trees remineralized with basalt rock dust (view the full presentation here).
