Part 1. Attacking Climate Change From Both Ends: Removing Old Excess CO2 From the Air:
Attacking Climate Change From Both Ends We shouldn't wait until after 2050 to begin work on the 500 billion ton legacy of CO2 already in the air. This is the CO2 cloud that is causing our current Climate Change damage.
Harvesting Climate Changing
A scientific paper advocating Direct Air Capture and Storage of the CO2 in the
air by spreading de-CO2'd Magnesium Oxide pebbles on fields, then recovering
their absorbed CO2.
CO2 Disposal Wells Once the CO2 is extracted from the treated Magnesium Oxide pebbles, it is compressed into a liquid, has 'CarbFix' added, then is injected deep underground where it will turn into solid limestone.
Part 2. Minimizing Future Climate Change:
Allam Clean Combustion Electricity A super-efficient carbon-fuel power plant - either Fossil or Biomass - that captures and uses its own CO2 as a supercritical working fluid then discharges it for permanent underground storage.
The Nuke Next Door The United States has largely phased out it's coal power plants, replacing them with large numbers of natural gas turbines located near their customers to reduce cost and increase reliability. Tiny nukes will replace them.
Geoengineering Altering the atmosphere's chemistry to reduce the amount of heat the Sun can deliver to Planet Earth's surface to reduce the heat load of Climate Change.
