Clay Mineral Could Cool Planet

Geologists at MIT have found a clay mineral which could help lower global temperatures! This mineral found on the seafloor called smectite, can capture carbon over millions of years. Researchers believe these minerals may have contributed towards the ice ages as they were created after major tectonic events. Used in small amounts, it's possible these minerals could help offset increasing global temperatures.
