Rock dust?
    #3963851 - 03/24/05 08:57 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

How does using rock dust help us manage climate change?

Under normal conditions - that is, without the negative impact of humankind in the last 200 years, it is largely the annual rate of weathering of rocks which controls atmospheric carbon dioxide. Using rock dust accelerates the weathering process by hundreds or maybe thousands of years, depending on how much is applied. The calcium and magnesium content in the rocks combines with atmospheric carbon to form carbonates. The faster silicate rocks "weather", the faster carbon is removed from the atmosphere.

Weathering is accelerated by the action of organic acids released from leaf-fall and other organic mulches. Rock dust, applied with organic mulches, simulates the natural weathering process, sequestering atmospheric carbon and replace eroded soils. It is a vital weapon, along with reducing carbon emissions and maintaining surface vegetation, in stabilising atmospheric carbon.

The use of rock dust will reduce or even eliminate our dependence on artificially produced chemical fertilisers, often based on fossil fuels, which themselves contribute to climate change and degrade soils.

It was in todays newspaper, they had a link attached.

They claim to boost the production of any vegetable and fruit making tomatoes like water-mellons and coconut size onions...

No photos at their site from a fast look i gave it...i don't think Scotland would donate 170.000 Euros in this, if it was bullshit tho...

Oh yea, the basic advantage of this method of cultivation, is that it uses very small amounts of water,making it ideal for the 3rd world countries. :thumbup:
