The same group of people that keeps lecturing us on how science allows boys to be girls, masks can stop a virus, and other claims to own the science world, comes a complete lack of understanding of physics and math.

Four years ago, I wrote about the scam of creating fuel for free by using a machine to make hydrocarbons out of the carbon dioxide in the air. For many reasons, not the least of which is the First Law of Thermodynamics, this system is a scam.

Then a year ago, I told you how that same company announced that they can take carbon dioxide from the air, liquefy it, and pump it into the ground, thereby saving us all from global climate change. Again, those pesky laws of physics.

Now they are building these things. They do not, and cannot, work to reduce atmospheric CO2. Even using so called “green energy” sources.

Science. It’s a thing.

A demonized yet essential atmospheric gas mixed with water and pumped underground where it turns to stone… Take that boogeyman! Then we can all mount little wind generators on the front of our electric cars to charge the batteries.

The techno triumphalists and the muh science crowd are what rotten vegetables and fruits are for.
Thomas Dolby should bring out a Blinded Me With Science remix to go with the UK/US versions that are available.
Green Scams are about redistribution and control as comrades never care about the environment in their by any means necessary Long March.

They would be better off planting trees. Don’t know if that will work in Iceland.

    Double the CO2 reduction by placing a politician in the hole to fertilize the tree.

It isn’t now and never has been about protecting the environment.
It’s about how brutally they can rape the taxpayers for grift and kick-backs. Although I’m guessing everyone here already knew that.

Let’s face it, long term we have three sources of energy we can tap. Solar, nuclear and gravitational. Fossil fuels are nothing more nor less than stored solar.

So of course I’d be in favor of widespread conversion of atmospheric CO2 to hydrocarbon fuel. Said fuels – gasoline, kerosene, et cetera – are after all much more convenient than batteries (higher energy density) for transport and storage, powering vehicles, etc. Save the fossil petrochemicals for things like plastics, pharmaceuticals, etc. until we can synthesize those as readily.

But we’d best build a whole lot of nuke plants to power the conversion process, because sure as sin, it will take more energy to make the fuel than we’ll get out of it. Orbital solar power stations would be fine, too, plus it would mandate having developed a heavy lift to orbit capability. (Hi, Elon!)

The ocean and the sun are the only things that have a real impact on CO2.

As the ocean warms from the sun, the ocean release CO2 into the atmosphere in the form of water vapor.

When the ocean cools, it absorbs CO2 until it reaches equilibrium on atmospheric pressure.

A warm bottle of beer is a great example on how CO2 works with fluids. The beer is carbonated with CO2 when it is chilled at the brewery. When the bottle or can of beer is warm at the store, CO2 in solution will be released into the head space of the can/bottle. Anyone who has rapidly chilled a beer will notice how much pressure there is when they pop the cap/top because all the CO2 in the head space has not had time to go back into solution. Wait a couple of days in the fridge and you’ll see the beer is more carbonated and has a different flavor.
