Climate Resilient Agriculture
Physical scientists proposed the mitigation options to combat global warming by (1) burying the CO2 in deep ocean, (2) by supplying iron to the parts of the ocean to increase the photosynthesis in ocean vegetation, (3) by the addition of light scattering particles to the atmosphere to scatter sunlight back to space, (4) by adding propane to counter the loss of stratospheric ozone, (5) by developing renewable energy generation technology from solar farms, and (6) by turning the greenhouse gases into stones, and this Scandinavian technology showed that by dissolving GHGs in water and pumping them underground, over 95% of injected CO2 converts into minerals and binds permanently within 2 years. These physical mitigation options may not be very economical due to their costs and side effects (IPCC 2005).
