Electricity from Nuclear, Fire
(Better than BECCS. By using nuclear energy to capture the CO2 feedstock and also to process the pyrolyzed biofuel feedstock, we maximize the biosynfuels yield. Click for more.) http://thorconpower.com/
ThorCon reactors can simply replace current coal plant boilers and their pollution. Slide Show ThorCon Exec_Summary.pdf Introductory video presented by ThorCon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfsOYzOpYRw
There is nothing an operator can do to stop this reactor from shutting itself off if going overtemperature. Nuclear power can be regulated like any other hazardous activity. The best model would be commercial airline travel.
"No Nukes" is the major reason we failed to stop Climate Change.
Not using nukes to fight Climate Change guarantees we will be using nukes to fight each other for food when Climate Change causes our food crops to fail.
Planet Earth's CO2 has been stable at about
(parts of CO2 per million parts of air) since the end of the last ice age
about 13,000 years ago.
This environmental stability produced an "optimal" environment that enabled humans to develop agriculture and civilizations for the first time.

It's high time we become intimately familiar with Generation 4 thorium nuclear technology in all it's glory and shortcomings. ThorCon is an excellent place to start.
