Title: Should we invest more in removing co2 from the atomsphere
Post by: Jemappelle on December 04, 2015, 01:53:32 AM
The technology exists, and we gain fuel as a by-product. So should we invest more in co2 capture and removal from the atomsphere?

Eventually we may have to. But for now I think it's more efficient to reduce existing emmisions, as that technology is well established, and more efficient for the same cost.

Could you explain how we gain fuel from it? We can't burn CO2 can we?

Absolutely. If we already have this technology, then why aren't we deploying it everywhere already? Sometimes my mind boggles at the people making our decisions. Climate change is the single biggest issue facing us as a species, and I feel like we just sit back here and watch it happen. If the wealthier billion people of the world all had to give 10 to invest in renewables and stopping climate change, we'd have 10,000,000,000 to play with - a lot of money. Something like this initiative needs to be considered.

Yes, I think we should. And I think that the longer we leave it, the more irreversible the damage is going to be, and this means that we really do need to sit up and do something about it as soon as we possibly can. It's not something that can wait, and as you say, the technology is already out there to make it a possibility, all that needs to happen now is for it to actually be put into practice in the right way.
