I hear a lot of dismay out there about the environment, but I believe there is still hope for the planet Earth, that we might even reverse the ongoing Holocene extinction if we humans stop squabbling and really get our act together. As one great example, it is said to be possible to undo the greenhouse effect we have created by extracting CO2 from the air in order to reverse climate change. The technology already exists, in fact, it just needs to be scaled up.
From its pilot plant in Squamish, British Columbia, Carbon Engineering has successfully developed and demonstrated its technologies and has been removing CO2 from the atmosphere since 2015 and converting it into fuels since 2017.
This technology is not fringe, but is supported by Bill Gates, Canadian Natural Resources Limited founder Murray Edwards, Occidental Petroleum and Chevron, among others.
Presently, Carbon Engineering’s Direct Air Capture system can remove a ton of CO2 from the air for about $100. Individual systems would be set to capture about a million tons of CO2 per year, requiring some tens of thousands of systems to keep up with global emissions and reduce atmospheric CO2 to normal levels by 2040.
There are just under 70,000 gas stations in the United States alone, so that isn’t very many to save the planet. …
