In July 2017, our very own professor Stasa Puskaric, was interviewed for the upcoming documentary Ice on Fire.
Ice on Fire, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, asks the question: Are we going to let climate change destroy civilization, or will we act on technologies that can reverse it? Ice on Fire features never-before-seen solutions on the many ways we can reduce carbon in the atmosphere thus paving the way for temperatures to go down, saving civilization. The film asks: “Is it game over? Or is it game on?
We believe it is game on, and that is why we are mobilizing and acting on the opportunity to collect funds to develop the GEA@275 technology. The technology could remove atmospheric carbon by inducing a Marine snow bloom in the Southern Oceans, and remove up to 8 billion tonnes of atmospheric carbon dioxide annually. That is equivalent to 20% of the world annual emissions, and in order to prevent a warming above 1,5°C (2,7 degrees Fahrenheit), we must reduce emissions by 45% the next ten years. That is only possible if we use geoengineering, and the GEA@275 technology is actually the only natural technology powerful enough to make a significant difference. Yes, it is uncertain if it will work, so it must be tested, verified and approved before implementation. With only 10 years to act, it is time to get things moving. We are now calling upon all of you who are interested in backing the research, to join our movement.
