Another Carbon sink

 How does one link to another web page?

Anyway here is the web adress on an article about a carbon sink that I had not been aware of.

"The rate of natural carbonation of tectonically exposed mantle peridotite during weathering and low-temperature alteration can be enhanced to develop a significant sink for atmospheric CO2. Natural carbonation of peridotite in the Samail ophiolite, an uplifted slice of oceanic crust and upper mantle in the Sultanate of Oman, is surprisingly rapid." (a quote from the above web page)
