that's fucking rad.

Quote
The study, in Joule, was written by researchers at Carbon Engineering in Calgary, Canada, which has been operating a pilot CO2-extraction plant in British Columbia since 2015. That plant — based on a concept called direct air capture — provided the basis for the economic analysis, which includes cost estimates from commercial vendors of all of the major components. Depending on a variety of design options and economic assumptions, the cost of pulling a tonne of CO2 from the atmosphere ranges between US$94 and $232. The last comprehensive analysis of the technology, conducted by the American Physical Society in 2011, estimated that it would cost $600 per tonne.

Wtf do we do with the CO2 we pull out.
Technically the explanation for why the sun sets at higher altitudes is also "waves," and whatnot.

We power our paintball guns, obviously.

Also, I feel like it's still cheaper to just produce less CO2.
You don't think I'm going to post here sober, do you?  ???

I have embraced my Benny Franko side. I'm sleazy.

Probably, but taking CO2 out of the atmosphere alleviates Climate Change.

You're also stealing air from plants.
You Monsters!  >o<

Plants gave us salad.
Animals gave us bacon, hamburgers and chicken.

Sod plants, frankly.

But salad is what food eats.

In the case of coal gasification, the CO2 is sold off to the oil industry where it is used in CO2 flooding to increase oil production in mature fields.  The CO21 goes deep underground where it will stay.   This was a very viable idea when the price of natural gas was high.
