Climate Restoration is an Idea Whose Time has Come

How can two crowdfunded projects restore the climate and what can you do to help?

Listen to this episode to find out how an astrophysicist became a climate activist.

In this Eco Scale Radio episode, Peter Fiekowsky, an MIT-trained physicist, discusses his plans to restore the climate condition to a safe climate zone* by implementing two simple, powerful, practical, affordable, crowdfunded, and scientifically-grounded projects that work with nature.

You’ll also discover how you can help get them implemented.

* the kind of healthy climate humankind has flourished under for ten thousand years.

“We need to duplicate what nature has done.”

- Peter Fiekowsky

Foundation for Climate Restoration.
Launched in 2017 to work with top scientists, innovators, policymakers, and others, to create the understanding and policy needed to further climate restoration. Our mission is to remove the excess CO2 from our atmosphere by 2050 to restore a climate that supports the long-term survival of humanity and our natural world.

Climate Restoration Project (a non-profit in development at the time of this recording)

This non-profit will use crowdfunding to finance the implementation of two climate restoration projects described in this podcast episode:

  • Restoring the oceans with iron fertilization

  • Enhancing the atmosphere with methane oxidation

The goal for two projects is to restore the climate to a safe climate zone by using scientifically-grounded strategies that work with nature.

No website available for this project at the time of this interview.

Value Bombs

1) We need to shift from stabilizing the climate to restoring it.

2) All the activity we are doing publicly is NOT going to restore the climate. It won’t reduce the CO2 levels. It’s designed to stabilize them. In the 1990s stabilizing made sense. In the 2020’s we need to restore and stabilize.

3) We need to keep our ecosystems healthy AND get the CO2 out of the atmosphere.

4) Peter’s team is currently focused on two affordable science-based projects to cool the planet:

  • Restoring the oceans with Ocean Iron Fertilization. (which is 30,000 times cheaper than Direct Air Capture)

  • Enhancing the atmosphere with Methane Oxidation. (which is almost as effective as Ocean Iron Fertilization)

5) Peter is using crowdfunding to finance his Climate Restoration projects.

Audible: Audible is the leading producer and provider of audiobooks.

Finding the opportunity to read can be a challenge. Many people rely on audiobooks when they don’t have time to read. An audiobook allows you to listen to the latest bestseller, learn a new skill, and gain new insights, while commuting, cooking dinner, or cleaning up the house.

I recommend listening to the following books:

Methane Oxidation is a natural process almost as effective as Ocean Iron Fertilization

Benefits of Climate Restoration: cool the planet, reduce the monster hurricanes, droughts, that we have had recently but did not have at the beginning of this century.

How long will it take to restore the climate

Who is the customer for restoring the climate?

Plan A: Ocean Iron Fertilization and Methane Oxidation

Plan B: Synthetic Limestone

Plan C: Seaweed Farming

The Real Cost of Direct Air Capture ($300-$1,000 per ton)

The Cost of Ocean Iron Fertilization (1-3 cents per ton)

The US Government has set aside $6B for Direct Air Capture

We need to keep our ecosystems healthy AND get the CO2 out of the atmosphere.
