Unless we can remove carbon from the Earth’s atmosphere to restore balance, humanity will face catastrophe of unimaginable scale.
The process is a win/win for the planet and people.
We can now lower CO2 and gain power from the sun, all with one molecule.
Climate change has been on the radar for more than 20 years, but complete solutions remain elusive. Some scientists are considering geoengineering, the act of making compensatory changes to the Earth’s climate to reverse the damage that has already been done.
Scientists thought it would take thousands of years. It took two.
How do you accidentally turn carbon dioxide into ethanol?
Can we really use a greenhouse gas to improve fuel efficiency?
It now seems clear that—for better or worse—human civilization is reshaping the Earth’s climate as never before. Using for inspiration the A2 scenario included in the IPCC’s “Special Report on Emission Scenarios,” we’ve assembled an infographic timeline of the next 84 years or so of global warming.
While the results may not be revolutionary, the doors now open may prove to be.
How can we help fix our CO2 problem? Simple. Just make it into rocks.
