I am torn here. On the one hand, this is an interesting scientific development with the byproduct being useful alcohol compounds necessary in medical fields.

On the other hand, this is yet another attempt to remove CO2 from the environment where it is needed for crop growth.

Thanks mad mechanical engineer! It's wonderful to read you again!

 I hear you loud and clear on that.

Interestingly, my wife has a new business that I'm helping her out with as a scientist.

One of the devices is a carbon capture unit.

She calls one of the companies "Elemental Air"

Why am I on board with this?

Because it will SAVE the fossil fuel industry!

I removed some details about what this system does/how it works since her business partners are concerned about me having a big mouth with regards to always stating facts and science. Which is true!

And its cheap as heck, only taking minimal energy from electricity to do this.

If not for this device.......a revolutionary invention, all the CO2 would need to be sequestered underground at a tremendous cost.

Many operations, like coal plants could never afford it and they would have to shut down.

In fact, the objective of many is to replace all fossil fuels ASAP because of the CO2 emissions. It's totally nuts.

This will save fossil fuels. Absolutely save them!!!

In 10 years, these will be like catalytic convertors on cars today.

These will get rid of most pollutants and also the beneficial gas CO2.  The saddest thing of all  is to see what the war on fossil fuels has done to our world and country.

Fake green energy, solar and wind, wrecking the environment for nothing.

These devices will be mass produced and take care of all of that. Half of our coal plants NEVER needed to shut down because there was no technology to manage CO2.

It's here!  You will see in a few years and heard it here first.  I'm not at liberty to discuss  any details of how it works.

We want to mainly sell to the US and Canada initially, then Europe. A big concern is that if we sell them to China, they will figure out how they work/steal the technology, despite the patent and mass produce them.

China has double the CO2 emissions as the US and are increasing, while building more coal plants as we shut ours down.

Elevated chance for an upcoming major drought in the US Cornbelt. Guess what they will blame it on?

Figured I would dip my toe back in so to speak and see how things are now.

Mike, your talk about your wife's new business reminded me of this plan I heard about a couple years back from a company called Carbon Engineering. Their plan is to capture CO2, 'crack' it to form carbon and oxygen. Then they crack water (H2O) using electrolysis (which is a really inefficient process, but I digress) to convert the water molecule into hydrogen and oxygen.

Well, what can you do when you have hydrogen, oxygen and carbon? Make liquid fuel for vehicles.

They have a video on YouTube that can be viewed here:

Thanks mm!

Which I could tell you more.........removed previous info because it tells more than advised considering this is proprietary info and I'm taking part in writing the patent.

These carbon capture units will be in widespread use in several years and this invention will  completely save the fossil fuel industry. 

They will be like catalytic convertors..............only with a catalytic convertor that had a bag at the end of the tailpipe collecting the extremely valuable end product.
