Capturing carbon, once a fringe idea, may be key to fighting climate change

Monday marks the 49th Earth Day. Despite decades of warnings from climate scientists, the world is still struggling to cut CO2 emissions, the main driver of climate change. Now, a handful of researchers and private companies are trying to fill in some of the gaps with what were once considered fringe ideas. Brook Silva-Braga reports.

    There are already aerosols in the atmosphere from burning coal which has a masking effect on the sun,if you quit using co2 the aerosols fall out of atmosphere and the temperature rises faster more and quickly.

    Trying to take a paltry amount out at the same time gigatons are being spewed in? Yeah, right. Last year, 2018, after more than 30 years of IPCC warnings and hand wringing, a record amount emitted. As he mentioned in the video, the IPCC assumes humanity will wake up at some stage and implement some kind of miraculous, massive, world-wide , multi-trillion dollar carbon capture crash-program in time to avert catastrophe. Ha..ha..ha. Not gonna happen. Anyone waiting for some sort of seminal climate change event that is going to galvanize the world’s leaders into action will be tragically disappointed.Politicians, to get votes, do what they think most of their constituents want, and there are just far too many stupid people. If seeing the world’s coral reefs dying, its glaciers disappearing, permafrost melting, and the steady uptick in extreme weather and wildfire events does not spur them to action, it is much too late to hope that any single event will ever do so. Our grandchildren are so doomed. Extreme weather events will slowly, incrementally, inexorably ramp up, that's what science tells us. In the second half of the century, billions are going to starve to death and mass extinction of what's left of the animal kingdom. It's going to be ghastly. .

    There is nothing unusual or wrong with Earth’s current average temperatures, which are constantly going up and down because our weather is constantly being affected by an almost infinite number of natural variables. Natural drivers of Earth temperatures include solar output levels, total planetary atmospheric density and pressure, the orbit of the Earth around the Sun, cycles of deep ocean currents, and cycles of the Moon’s gravitational pull on ocean water. The idea that CO2 controls Earth temperatures is not supported by the ancient ice core records or by measured temperatures recorded since the Industrial Revolution. The multi-billion dollar climate fear industry continues today because it is such a big money maker for scientists, literally thousands of green scam businesses, professional environmentalists, the media, and even universities seeking government research grants. Whipping up climate hysteria has been a powerful tool for politicians who want government committees to run the world, not free markets and authentic science. Countless American politicians have had their picture taken in front of giant industrial windmills, which by their proven environmental and economic track record are monuments to the stupidity of man, not a solution to any human problem.

    Store it for when the earth is heading for an ice age from too low of CO2, then put it on the road, get methane from under the melting Permafrost in the Arctic, there is 70 Trillion tons we don't want in the atmosphere, it's 23 times as bad as CO2. We need a freeze field to drop over the methane bombs to keep it frozen for now until we figure out how to safely remove it.

      Phats Donahue St. Helens put more pollution in the air then the past 100 yrs 1 California forest fire puts more pollution in the air then all the U.S. in a year It’s like we live in an insane society The volcano erupted several times during the Holocene, the largest eruption took place in the year 1600. The 1600 eruption was the largest historical eruption in South America, measuring 6 on the Volcanic Explosivity Index. It occurred on the 19th February and continued with a series of events into March. Witnessed by the people of the city of Arequipa, its impact in the region was severe, wiping out vegetation and burying the surroundings with 2 metres (6 ft 7 in) of volcanic rock; it also damaged infrastructure and economic resources. The eruption had significant effects on Earth's climate, decreasing temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere, causing floods, famines and cold waves in numerous places, and depositing several million tons of acid. The climate disruption caused social upheaval in many countries such as Russia and may have played a role in the onset of the Little Ice Age.

    Direct Air Capture (DAC), coupled with Air-To-Fuels (ATF) technologies from companies such as Canada's Carbon Engineering, represent the kind of technological solutions to climate change that make sense and should be broadly implemented as quickly as possible. Converting the personal transportation sector to electric vehicles addresses a minority fraction of the global greenhouse gas problem. It would also cost a projected $50 trillion! Instead, liquid fuels that are chemically identical to their fossil fuel cousins, essentially transform conventional vehicles into carbon neutral forms of transportation upon first use. ATF-derived liquid fuels also integrate seamlessly with existing infrastructure and extend to every use (buses, trucks, farm and industrial equipment, even airplanes and power generation)! Combined with power generation from renewable sources (solar, wind, hydro/tidal, geothermal, etc.) and "green nuclear power" plants based Molten Salt Reactor designs, it is possible to avert a complete climate breakdown. But we have to act. And do so quickly!

So METHANE is not the Answer. Mark is right If every family would plant 2 trees a year in World wide. Problem solved. Mark Tprodicus is right. You can buy tree that are 6 feet tall.

At what point do plants 'suffocate' without carbon in the air? 280 ppm.. without that in the atmosphere all your plants will die. (nothing to eat) What are the current levels right now? 420 ppm worldwide average. What is the highest level historically? 7000 ppm That means we are critically low on carbon in the atmosphere right now... if you cause the plants to die.. animals will starve. no plants or animals for you to eat.

    I'm just here to watch the npcs telling us to plant more trees, thinking we'd actually be able to plant enough to prevent so much CO2 from building up in the atmosphere. And then we have the antiscience individuals denying that it works which clearly gives an accurate representation of their education level. We rely heavily on oil and gas outside of just running motor vehicles, as just about every bit of plastic you see and use was conceived of oil and gas, medicines are made of oil and gas, specialty chemicals are made of oil and gas, etc. Oil and gas will not be going anywhere until the last painstaking drop is drained form this earth as there will never be a more efficient means of manufacturing these chemical based products to replace it, and no one is going to invest billions of dollars on innovating new technology while we still have oil and gas. Instead, companies are mitigating the issue via carbon capture devices and its storage.

    It seems like, carbon from the air could be used to create carbon fiber solids. The possibilities from the made carbon fiber could be used for building to automotive.

    The news reader claimed "CO2 is the main driver of climate change" The mainstream media should lead by example. Cease their poisonous emissions and stop breathing for 6 munutes, its such a small price to pay to end all fears of climate change .

    If someone is running a big C02 capture site, won't all the nearby plants die? Sure, a gas like CO2 will spread freely, but would a local sink cause a local deficit? I'm being serious.

    If we are really serious about reducing CO2 emissions, we should stop buying products from the dirtiest manufacturer on the planet - China. By the way, the vaunted Paris Climate Accord treats China as a "developing nation" and does not require them to take any concrete steps to reduce CO2 emissions. So if you want to help address climate change, the best thing you can do is buy products from one of the world's cleanest countries such as the USA.

    left wing pushing the same old, tired, Al Gore narrative... read the IPCC reports. They've shown from ice cores in the Antarctic that the Earth goes through massive climate changes every 60,000 years or so, and we're due. stfu

      +Jason Starr For as much carbon that is put into that atmosphere by volcanoes, the same amount is taken back from the atmosphere in a natural cycle. The problem is we're adding carbon, and taking none back. This is well understood by scientists around the globe. The way science works, it simply would be impossible for a global hoax to exist. It would be larger than the illuminati.

      +Unmanned Ocelot You're absolutely right that humanocentric impact on the environment needs to be addressed. And, I accept that we have had a huge impact on the environment. But I disagree that even if every person takes 100% responsibility for becoming totally sustainable, that carbon emissions will cease to be a challenge to the environment. Volcano eruptions put way more carbon into the atmosphere (so I've read) than humans do. In the end, we all have to "trust" some unidentified "scientist" or panel of scientists to get our facts, don't we?

      You're skipping over the fact that the very same scientists who dig up those ice cores also understand that what we are doing to the atmosphere is very dangerous. The political left might be the ones running with the idea of climate change, but politics are separate from science.
