    Yes, a catalytic converter for CO2, essentially.

    Unfortunately, the whole point of combustion is to release the chemical energy stored in the carbon-carbon bonds in hydrocarbons so that we can harness some of that energy for useful purposes. If you want to break them apart only to put them right back, then you may as well just leave that petroleum in the ground. Which I'm guessing you would be okay with.
    If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

    I'm fine with taking the petroleum out of the ground if we can find some way of uptaking the CO2. Poke a big pipe down into the mantle and pump it down there. What could go wrong?

    There is an irony that a guy who had solar panels removed from WH and didnít believe in this is now in danger of losing his library.
    Agree that it would be horrible to lose the stuff inside

    They should pretend the fire in the AIDS crisis and ignore it.

    Why is this surprising? This is an entirely predictable outcome after decades of deregulation.

    Shouldn't be much. It will not house any books--only online access to his tweets and episodes of Fox and Friends.

    Re: Climate Change 2: Thank God for Global Warming

    OK Boomer
    A 25-year-old New Zealand lawmaker on Tuesday offered a blunt response to a colleague who apparently heckled her during a speech she gave addressing the urgency of climate change on the floor of Parliament: ďOK, boomer.Ē

    ChlŲe Swarbrick, a member of the Green Party, expressed the statement as she emphasized how the consequences of climate change will fall on people of her generation.

    As she expressed support for legislation to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, Swarbrick noted how she would be around the age of the average lawmaker in Parliament by that time.

    "We are in a climate crisis, if we don't get this right, nothing else matters. ... In the year 2050, I will be 56 years old, yet right now the average age of this 52nd Parliament is 49 years old," she said, prompting what appears to be an audible gasp and a heckle.
    Swarbrick then raised her hand before replying "OK boomer" and moving on with her speech.

    Ah yes, nothing like bringing cutesy Twitter cancel culture into the halls of lawmakers.
