4 CO2 Capture

There is just one really effective way of carbon capture and that is plants. They take the carbon and use it to build themselves with and release all that lovely oxygen back in the air where it belongs. That takes energy from the sun to do it, solar energy.

But that isn't what they really mean when it comes to carbon capture and second what they do mean is carbon dioxide capture and that means oxygen capture and guys that isn't so great for the environment either. That of course assumes that all this slightly acidic gas is going to stay happily underground or where ever else you put it. Its going to take 10% to 40% of the generated energy just to store the stuff so the whole concept isn't looking that good.

At the end of the day guys I thought we already figured that recycling was a good thing. It just doesn't work to leave our rubbish for the next generation.
