📢#ExOIS is using #GivingTuesday to launch its crowd funding campaign. Show your support by donating towards the mission of using science to explore #OceanIronFertilization for #CDR.

Please retweet and share to spread the word❗️

If the #ExOIS Paths Forward plan is too long a read, check out the 2-page executive summary that distills the key messages of how science will explore if #OceanIronFertilization is a viable and responsible method of #CDR

Thank you @WHOI for spreading the word about the importance of deepening our scientific knowledge about the potential utility of #OceanIronFertilization for #CDR
@Cafe_Thorium @OceanObserver

Science must lead the way to determine if #OceanIronFertilization is a responsible, efficient and viable method of CO2 removal #OIF #CDR #ExOIS
