Could ants offer away to cut down on carbon in Earth's atmosphere?

25-year-long study provides the first quantitative measurement of in situ calcium-magnesium silicate mineral dissolution by ants, termites, tree roots, and bare ground. This study reveals that ants are one of the most powerful biological agents of mineral decay yet observed. It may be that an understanding of the geobiology of ant-mineral interactions might offer a line of research on how to "geoengineer" accelerated carbon dioxide consumption by Ca-Mg silicates.
This is interesting. At least someone is looking for a solution. Instead of denying reality.

Yeah, that is interesting.

The politicians that are owned by the fossil fuel industry deny that there's a problem.
And then, loyal party members believe them even though people can set their tap water on fire.
It's a lot like being a cult member..... Scientific facts are evil.

Politicians have muddied the water so much with who's out to do who harm because they're this or that, people don't know what to believe anymore.
Then there's the gasbags in the media that do the same for ratings and profit.
I've never seen this level of BS propaganda being disseminated before.
People are being sucker punched by it because it's coming from sources that they used to trust.

I hate to say it, and I hope I'm wrong but, this is the kind of BS that sets the stage for assassination attempts.
The true believer wingnuts get worked up.

And it's not just the US. It's happening all over the globe.

The voice of reason has left the building.

The weak, worthless and god forsaken people in Europe who continue to placate jihadist and Hamas are the same. Reality is unacceptable to them. They prefer to delude themselves and everyone they can. They are disgusting, irrational, worthless creatures. They are evil and have no trace of integrity.
