Spotted this story on Yahoo News: Scientists say a rock can soak up carbon dioxide.
It had this picture, with the caption:
Scientists sample a stalagmite of carbonate minerals in an undated photo courtesy of Columbia University’s Lamont -Doherty Earth Observatory. A rock found mostly in Oman can be harnessed to soak up the main greenhouse gas carbon dioxide at a rate that could help slow global warming, scientists say.
Looks like a totally fun job to have.
