Seriously, we should just hunt termites. There are billions of the fvckers in Australia. They don’t do anything but breath CO2 out and be a nuisance. They pump more CO2 out than most factories. Let kill em. (This is a bit satirical. I’m sure they have some function in Australia’s ecology)
@FPVeteranWolf, only 30% satirical
@FPVeteranWolf, politicians for real tho
@FPVeteranWolf, well they probably produce a lot of CO2 but Termites actually produce more methane than any other living creature and that’s including cows. We should definitely hunt them down. Should be easier to kill than emus too.
@FPVeteranWolf, can we eat them?
@FPVeteranWolf, what ammo do I need for termites?
@stercus stercus, anything not wooden
We have to change from blow to suck
@Steve the cat, is that an order
@Steve the cat, did some carbon based life form just say....SUCCC?
Trees decompose and the CO2 is eventually released again, algae in the ocean sink into the bedrock and is locked away until it comes out of a volcano. A better solution to lowering CO2 levels
That’s the point tho, trees alone aren’t enough to reduce CO2 levels.
@Bobomojo, well I no tree hugger, but it would certainly help a lot if we weren't cutting them all down.
@Not him again, young trees consume CO2 at a higher rate than their older counterparts. Just like palm oil. The solution isn't to use less. Its to use sustainable.
@PoliticalOtters, I never knew that, thank you for the info. And no I'm not being sarcastic, as many of my posts are.
Most of "air" is nitrogen, the tiny percentage that is CO2 isn't enough to register as a blip. Don't fall for the money grab
Who let doodle bob out?
Trees are carbon neutral in their lifetime
How about we create giant air tanks, then use the insane power output of nuclear reactors to break down the greenhouse gasses in the air into their base components through electrolysis? Then we can collect the carbon for whatever we might need carbon for, and release the air back out.
Yes, it would be expensive. But it would be cheaper and easier than dealing with the effects of climate change over time.
