Global Costs

Climate change is going to cost the world trillions of dollars in damage and lost economic value, with models predicting a cost of up to $67 trillion from Arctic melt alone. For a comparatively “inexpensive” $250 billion per year, however, the entire world can remove an equivalent amount of the CO2 it releases each year with olivine. This is not meant as a free pass for countries to continue releasing their emissions but is meant as a mechanism to buy time for countries while they work to cease their CO2 release.
