Professors David Beerling and Noah Planavsky are both experts in the innovative practice of "enhanced rock weathering," which crushes rocks such as basalt and applies the powder to soil as a way of improving the quality of the soil and also capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and sequestering it.
