Sucking carbon from the atmosphere: the new way to solve "climate change"?
Nat'l NewsWatch: B.C. company says it is sucking carbon from air, making fuel
Bloomberg Opinion: "New technology means we might not need so many electric cars"
If you buy that, well, they say there's one born every minute. It's highly unlikely that so many countries' plans to enforce electric vehicles are all for naught. Electric cars will more than likely be a boon to the carbon engineering industry. Think of the coal that could be burned to produce the electricity to recharge them.
The US government lists all the perils of coal, but then hastens to show how it works to "reduce" the effects.
From The Economist:
Even some global warming believers warn "...it's not all blue skies and rainbows".
Exceed their carbon budgets? Won't companies be freely allowed their emissions in order to fill the atmosphere with carbon, and help expedite this new way of making an all-round killing?
Think of the competition! Each of the carbon engineering companies will be buying TV Ads claiming that the product of the others just doesn't cut it.
Now THAT'S peer review!
But it does answer a question, for me at least, as to why conservative governments have been fighting the carbon tax. It would be interesting to see how many politicians have sunk some bucks into the production of this new fuel. Carbon taxes were created to reduce emissions but, given this new technology, that wouldn't be good; no, not at all.
The Liberal government may have known this as well. If so, then they've just been intoning the scriptures while planning how to get away with sinning. How many of their members are investing in Carbon Engineering?
The whole EU had to have known as well, which may be why the US felt so confident in maintaining the status quo, and Trump expressing his love of coal.
As with so many other issues, the climate hooey has always been about the Markets! And duping us all into reducing our consumption for the war effort. What other explanation can there be?
If this Carbon Engineering thing really does take off, how safe will the product be? Remember the long-delayed process we went through with gasoline -- the restrictions on lead, for instance? Can't help wondering what hidden gems will be found in this new kind of fuel.
Or will it be used only for warfare while car drivers are forced to go in hock for electric, fuelled by coal and its delicious emissions? Delicious in that coal burning will also fuel the carbon engineering enterprise. So, win, win all 'round.
Who will be in charge of the brakes? At what point will these competing companies have sucked all of the cO2 out of the atmosphere, killing the vegetation that depends on it to thrive? Questions abound, n'est ce pas?
It does sound a bit like a variation of the hockey stick theory dramatically promulgated by Al Gore, which, incidentally, is currently being litigated in a Canadian court:
From AIER: ‘Hockey Stick’ Climate Change Enforcer Checked Hard in Canadian Case
See Prof.Tim Ball's videos on YouTube. The guy's got both brains and guts.
Note: The company "Carbon Engineering" is part-owned by Malthusian philosopher Bill Gates and he hasn't expanded his wealth by investing in unmarketable projects -- the pharmaceutical industry, for instance, which doesn't give a hoot about the horrific claims against it.
