Attacking Climate Change From Both Ends: Removing 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 and Burying Climate Changing 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.
A Biomass Allam Cycle Power Plant A new thermodynamic cycle that uses supercritical CO2 instead of steam as the working fluid. Once running, some of this supercritical CO2 can be extracted, liquefied, and injected into a Class VI CO2 disposal well.
The Electricity & Hydrogen Nuke Next Door The U.S. is phasing out it's coal power plants in favor of natural gas turbines located nearer their customers. Tiny nukes capable of powering big hydrogen manufacture will replace them.
Water Like Magic - but based upon science - and available for sale today if you have the money. Solar cells, wind turbines and tiny nuclear reactors pulling substantial amounts of water from dry air in the middle of a desert.
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.
