6. The desperation of fossil fuel addicts gets worse.

Those "100 large ships operating all year" are busy burning fossil fuels.

The "1b tonnes of the mineral olivine" require extraction (using fossil fuels and large scale destruction)
as olivine weathers very rapidly on the surface (hence it's desirability for this purpose).

At least Köhler has it right: "It certainly is not a simple solution against the global warming problem"
but I bet most of the FF addicts never get to that part.
