E02 Rock Dust! with Garrett Boudinot, PhD

Moderated by Toby Bryce and Megha Raghavan.
Produced by OpenAir (openaircollective.cc)

In this episode of This is CDR we are pleased to welcome Dr. Garrett Boudinot from Cornell to introduce us to enhanced rock weathering (ERW), and outline how “rock dust” as a soil amendment has the potential to mineralize and remove gigatons of CO2 from the atmosphere in the coming decades.

Garrett Boudinot is a Research Associate with Cornell’s Deptarment of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. He also works as a Community Science Fellow with the American Geophysical Union’s Thriving Earth Exchange and serves as a science advisor at ClimateMusic.

Garrett completed his PhD at the University of Colorado Boulder on the ecological impacts of climate change after receiving his Bachelors in both geology and religious studies at the College of Charleston.

OpenAir is excited to present This Is CDR, an online event series that will explore the ever-widening range of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) solutions currently being researched, developed, and deployed, and contextualize them for policy proposals under development for New York, and other states and localities.
