As rising levels of atmospheric greenhouse gases continue to threaten drastic climate change, some scientists are scouring for ways to scrub the key offender, carbon dioxide (CO2), right out of the air. Now, a team of chemists led by Stuart Licht at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., thinks it has discovered a method that could possibly pay for itself by making something potentially useful out of the CO2 pulled from the air. Today in Nano Letters, the group presents a process that turns atmospheric CO2 into carbon nanofibers similar to valuable materials used in industries such as aerospace, construction, and electronics.

it is called planting a tree.
I learned this years ago,
and therefore I did the scientific thing.
I planted hundreds of trees.
I tried my best to plant as many
as I could to make up for the ones
the son's of bitches cut down and
pulped into junk mail.
In fact, I still plant a tree to this day
whenever I am able.
Flag to you, even though I disagree with your Nano.
I'm a firm believer that a few shovel born
blisters on ones hands never did
anyone real harm to their souls.

This turns the carbon dioxide in the air into a resource instead of a burden. If enough new technology comes out like this, we could potentially reverse climate change while creating jobs and boosting the economy.
I assume you are referring to Kshe, the bloke from Iran.
I brought the kit to take the CO2 out the air but there is no movement at the ranch on the second part of the technology to turn it into electricity.
