https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-47163840>How does it reverse climate change?>When a forest grows, the trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and use it to make their wood.>If you burn that wood, the process doesn’t emit any extra CO2 into the atmosphere - because the trees removed it from the air in the first place. It’s called carbon neutral.>If you go one step further by capturing the CO2 from wood burning, you’re actually reducing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere overall.>In an ideal world you’d go one step further by creating useful products from the waste CO2.
>>354370>creating useful products from the waste CO2Such as?
>>354422OIL TO BURN!
the atmosphere needs more CO2 not less you fucking idiots
>>354442I hope that's sarcasm.
>>354422Possibility 1: various non-oil-based plastics.We're not going to stop using plastics anytime soon, just need to produce them from more sustainable sources.
I want to invest in this when it starts what companies to look for?
>>354514Do you have any idea how this is done? I.e. the synthesis of long chain hydrocarbons from free gas?
>>354370>>354515im with you, ive been following this tech closelyCarbon Engineering is the one to watch in the USthis article is about Drax Power

>>354454What? We're not on Mars.
>>354509Nope, any technology we create to concentrate enough free carbon to effectively store just needs a half step to make more fuel.
>>354521chemical reactions, as usualthat's how plants make their carbs, we can reproduce the process - for a price that, unsurprisingly, no industry is (currently) willing to pay
>>354657>>354658That "half step" requires at least as much energy to form the bonds as is released in their burning. It requires a lot of energy. And where does energy come from...?
>>354509Biogas is actually a great idea if we have good managed forestry and maybe technological carbon recapture. Gasoline engines are quite clean and efficient nowadays, we just need to start budgeting the carbon effectively.
>>354682>good managed forestryConstant wildfires in CA show that to be a no.>technological carbon recaptureAs previously mentioned, this does not exist. And cannot exist. Outside of a complete conversion to nuclear power. Such already solves the "problem.">Biogas is actually a great ideaNo. No it's not.
>>354685>Constant wildfires in CA show that to be a no.Californian here. The majority of our forests revolve around shrub undergrowth and operate on a decade cycle of growth into burn with a rest period; see fire ecology. However, it is exacerbated by the effects of climate change with droughts being one of the largest factors.
>>354688Also exacerbated by hipsters trying to protect eucalyptus trees that make things worse.
>>354685You're making some pretty standoffish claims, can you elaborate?
>>354539>>354537What's the most convenient way to invest?T. Poorfag and idiot Is that Robin Hood thing any good?
>>354669of course, no beating thermodynamics after allanyway, living cells have been doing it for a while with acceptable efficiency and byproductsthe only wall is rentability, and industry currently refuses to use the cleaner chemical pathways because they're more expensivethey'll only move when it's economically attractive to do so
>>354712>T. Poorfag and idiotyou'll get swindled of everything you still have, get away from this stuff
>>354744I gotta do something man I'm going to be stuck like this foreverI literally don't have the time or money to go back to school, even then that's a crapshoot in of itself. it's either I pay the lotto or I sell drugs at this point And I'm not talking about slap on the wrist this is your first offense. I'm talking about hardcore shit man
>>354370As a fascist, I hope this carbon capture project is successful, and we can begin healing the environment.Hopefully we start replenishing forests and the oceans too, and we don't rely on this like mechanical life support.
>>354826>As a fascist,I hope you're a benevolent one.
>>354422add an extra oxygen and calcium to carbon dioxide and you have calcium carbonatetry thinking like a chemist and you'll realise there are loads of ways to "dispose" of the excess exhaustis simply a case f find one that's both efficient and useful>>354743>>of course, no beating thermodynamics after allindeedif you did want to turn it back into fuel there would be an energy cost somewherean interesting idea might be using something truly renewable like wind or wave power >>354682if climate change is really to be tackled we need to start capturing a greater range of greenhouse gases methane for example is produced in huge quantities from human and animal wastemore of this this to be capture the burnt for energy with the result carbon dioxide itself being captured
>>354799well, getting rich from that is a bit less risky than lottery, but i still can't advise eitherdon't rush and always consider all your optionstake care
>>354515>>354537>>354539>I want to invest in this when it starts what companies to look for?I am. Just completed my second technical assistance stint from the second of two, separate, national DOE laboratories.Plan to re-purpose the carbon for growing flowers, fruits, and vegetables indoors.And some bio-fuel, too. Plan to stay private though.
>>354669>And where does energy come from...?Solar, hydro, wind, tide, open your mind and learn!
>>355031Sigh. So you believe that the most efficient use of our fossil fuel reserves is the construction of "renewable" power plants (because they simply do not presently exist to provide a fraction of the necessary generation capacity) and supply the agriculture infrastructure in order create less fuel substitute than was involved in its production? This, of course, says nothing for water and land use.Did that seem at all sensible to you? Why not cut out the middle process and just burn the plant matter?If I may return your cretinous command back at you: Think!
>>354838>add an extra oxygen and calcium to carbon dioxide and you have calcium carbonateSuper. Are you volunteering to do it manually with tweasers? Incidentally, you fucking twit, do you know how calcium is industrially produced? FROM CALCIUM CARBONATE.
>>354370Good god, what a phony scam.
>>354515You really want to lose money don't you?
>>354688>However, it is exacerbated by the effects of climate changeDon't forget it's exacerbated by the effects of pg&e
>>355036>do you know how calcium is industrially produced?The decomposed bones of aborted fetuses(feti?)
