    How about we stop popping out kids and plant more trees instead?

    I think Iceland was the first and built a carbon removal system and has been doing that for awhile.

    Let me get this straight...

    Humans put out 40 billions of CO2 into the air every year. This is coming from the 185 billion, billion tons of carbon on the earth that we dig up. Yes, billion, billion...that wasn't a typo. This device is going to capture 12,000 tons.

    So, let's add some zeros for effect"

    There's 185,000,000,000,000,000,000 TONS of carbon on the planet.

    We dig some of that up and turn it into CO2: that's 40,000,000,000

    This project will take the CO2 from the air and replace it back into the earth: "estimated" 12,000

    Who is paying for this venture? Government grants? Here's a quote from the article:

    "The largest plant currently operating in the world, the Orca plant in Iceland, currently captures about 4,000 tons of carbon per year. "

    So, the government declares a global crisis and gives money to folks to fix said issue...effectively, carbon is being used as a currency for tax purposes. None of the numbers add up as to why this is something the government should take action on...oh wait, anything they can siphon money out of our pockets and into theirs is ok...we're to dumb to see it happening.

    Some of us see it. The general population is too busy virtue signalling online to worry about reality.

    Halting immigration to people from any country who doesn't have a law in place limited the amount of kids to one per person sounds good to me.
    And lets have the same here in North America.
