The headline reads This Climate Fix Might Be Decades Ahead Of Its Time
I much prefer "crackpots" of this sort to the junk science talking point crowd who endlessly parrot the nonsense from the sellouts at places like the Heartland Institute and the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal.
Every year, people add 30 billion tons of carbon dioxide to the air, mostly by burning fossil fuels. That's contributing to climate change. A few scientists have been dreaming about ways to pull some of that CO2 out of the air, but face stiff skepticism and major hurdles. This is the story of one scientist who's pressing ahead.
Peter Eisenberger is a distinguished professor of earth and environmental sciences at Columbia University.
He started looking for a way to pull carbon dioxide right out of the air. "And it turned out the best device already exists," he says. "It's called a monolith. That is the same type of instrument that's in the catalytic converter in your car. It cleans up your exhaust."
A monolith? I love that one, also (Cue up Thus Sprach Zarathustra)
