A team at Berkeley labs have genetically modified a strain of bacteria to speed up the process of transforming CO2 the gas into CaC03 a mineral carbonate, which normally takes thousands of years naturally. Apparently it works! When CO2 was pumped into the environment, they found that calcium carbonate formed faster in areas where the bacteria were living than it did in sterile solutions. Could this be a step in the right direction, or just another wild goose chase? What do you guys think?
