    Scientists claim they can convert CO2 from atmosphere to gas

    Scientists claim they can convert CO2 from atmosphere to gas

    I have long said that the warmist position on global warming was extremist. Even if we take their dire predictions as fact, science would fix the problem long before draconian political solutions would. And here we have an example of my predictions:

    We can cheaply scrub the atmosphere of CO2 and turn it into fuel.

    I wonder how the Paris Climate Accord folks are going to react to this- a non Statist solution to their pet problem.

    A team of scientists claims to have discovered a cheaper way to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and turn it into gasoline or other fuels, which could arm humanity with a new tool in the fight against climate change.

    Published in the scientific journal Joule on Thursday, the research demonstrates a new technique that pulls carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, and converts it into liquid gasoline, diesel or jet fuel.


    Canadian clean energy company Carbon Engineering, in partnership with researchers from Harvard, used little more than limestone, hydrogen and air for the process, which can remove one metric ton of CO2 for as little as $94, the scientists say. It cleans up the environment, and produces eco-friendly liquid fuel at the same time.



    "Until now, research suggested it would cost $600 per ton to remove CO2 from the atmosphere using DAC technology, making it too expensive to be a feasible solution to removing legacy carbon at scale," David Keith, Harvard Professor and founder of Carbon Energy said in a statement. "We now have the data and engineering to prove that DAC can achieve costs below $100 per ton."


    DAC refers to "direct air capture" technology, or the technique by which Carbon Engineering extracts CO2 from air.

    How long will it be before they start doing this on a large scale? (They need limestone; Florida has limestone mines.)
