The Get Real Alliance has released a documentary series covering topics from founder David Munson’s book Get Real: A Positive Solution to Climate Change. The eight episodes released so far describe the carbon cycle, biochar and rock dust, as well as issues related to grasslands, forests, oceans and more.
The Get Real Alliance explains their goals as follows: “The Get Real Alliance supports rock dust remineralization of soil and wetlands, biochar additions to soil for fertility and water retention, marine wetland restoration and overall agricultural changes.”
Nestled within the lush Costa Rican landscapes, a health-conscious innovator and horticultural pioneer has been rewriting the rules of farming.
During a listening session, Maine residents raised concerns to Rep. Chellie Pingree regarding the introduction in the United States Congress of the latest five-year Farm Bill.

David Paul Blessing examines volcanic rocks that will be used to produce a locally sourced, nature-based fertilizer for small-scale farmers in the Kilimanjaro region, Tanzania.
David Paul Blessing, President of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) in Tanzania, has a science-backed plan to bring better outcomes to small-scale farmers, their families and communities in the Kilimanjaro region in northeastern Tanzania.
Across Tanzania, agriculture employs 75% of the working population. ...

In 2020, Google announced its goal to achieve net zero emissions by 2030. Google plans to achieve this target through reducing direct and indirect emissions (scope 1, 2, and 3) by 50% and investing in carbon removal technologies to offset any remaining emissions. As a way to propel technology-based carbon removal solutions forward and meet their own sustainability goals, Google has announced it is accepting proposals for its 2023 Google Carbon ...
A seminal breakthrough in the global carbon removal market came when Nasdaq acquired a majority stake of Puro.earth in June 2021. This partnership between Puro.earth, described as “the world’s leading carbon crediting platform for engineered carbon removal,” and Nasdaq, a global electronic stock exchange, represents a huge opportunity to scale the marketplace as more companies look to offset their emissions.

In November 2022, a panel of four AirMiners (those working to ‘mine’ atmospheric carbon and stabilize it in the ground) met to discuss the potential of Enhanced Rock Weathering (ERW) and associated challenges for establishing credibility and trust. In short, we need a way to prove that greenhouse gasses ...
Dirk Praessler, CEO of Carbon Drawdown Initiative
One of the biggest challenges we face today is climate change. Scientists have long-since warned of the inevitable effects of a warming planet, yet despite this urgency, today’s economy continues to run primarily on fossil fuels.
Decarbonization – the active capture and storage of CO2 from the atmosphere – is one possible solution. However, as Dirk Paessler, founder and CEO of Carbon Drawdown Initiative explained in a recent “Open Air This is CDR” episode, Decarbonization is “pointless without 90% ...
RTE’s latest white paper highlights up-to-date scientific information on remineralization and enhanced rock weathering. Here’s what you can learn.
Researchers, farmers, and climate activists around the world have long-since known about the benefits of soil remineralization and enhanced rock weathering. The results are in and the science is clear: Remineralization techniques can restore, enhance, and maintain soil fertility while capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.
Remineralize the Earth (RTE) has recently published a ...
