  • Ocean iron fertilization and the effects of iron levels in the ocean
  • Barriers to achieving “safe-harbor” climate
  • The Big Four of climate restoration – ocean iron fertilization, turning CO2 into synthetic limestone, using seaweed to fertilize the ocean, and atmospheric methane oxidation
  • Affordable climate restoration
  • How to get people to promote climate restoration?
  • Who suffers most from climate issues?
  • Peter’s book, Climate Restoration—The Only Future That Will Sustain the Human Race
"The scientists and technologists I know who I talked to about it, they say, we can’t restore the climate because it’s politically impossible. Then when I talked to political scientists or economists and ask them, they say well we can’t restore the climate because it’s physically impossible. Because they listened to the scientists who said it’s impossible and they assumed that the scientists were speaking inside their profession." - Peter Fiekowsky

About Peter Fiekowsky:

Peter Fiekowsky is an MIT-educated physicist and engineer, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and author. He has worked at NASA and the Fairchild/Schlumberger Artificial Intelligence Lab in Palo Alto, Calif.; taught at MIT; and developed his own machine vision company, Automated Visual Inspection LLC (AVI).

Peter holds 27 patents and is on the board of Climate Capex, a fintech company to help complete the global transition to 100 percent clean energy by 2040 by tripling the rate of investment in solar projects.

A decade ago, when it became clear that global warming would endanger all our futures, Fiekowsky turned his energies to restoring a climate that will promote the flourishing of humanity and the Earth’s current ecosystems. He launched the Foundation for Climate Restoration in 2017 to work with top scientists, innovators, policymakers, and others, to create the understanding and policy needed to further climate restoration, and served as its Board Chairman until 2020.

Fiekowsky continues to work closely with academic and entrepreneurial leaders who are developing viable, scalable, and permanent solutions that constitute the climate-restoration path.

Since methane contributes about 30 percent of global warming, and poses its own challenges, Peter has also been instrumental in the formation of Methane Action. And since ultimately a thriving world will depend on a sustainable population, he also underwrites Stable Population Alliance.

He advises many companies working in the climate restoration field, in particular synthetic limestone, clean energy financing, cold fusion, ocean restoration, kelp, and methane oxidation.

Fiekowsky lives with his wife, Sharon, in Los Altos, near his grown son and daughter in the heart of Silicon Valley.

"Being an engineer and an entrepreneur, we get skilled at designing the requirements. One of the requirements is it has to be financially viable. To do all of these Climate Restoration would cost probably about $2-3 billlion a year depending on how you want to do it. That’s about 1/10,000 or 1/100,000 of the world’s GDP. It’s essentially nothing. So the limitation isn’t financial. The limitation is cultural. It’s really the way humanity thinks.” - Peter Fiekowsky
