+ - What's being dev'd to help the global environment?

Submitted by
Environmentally Inept
Environmentally Inept writes "I'm constantly hearing people screaming that the sky is falling, and it sure is getting hot out there, but all I hear are ways to reduce future emissions (all car technologies). Is someone developing an atmosphere scrubber to reduce existing methane and CO2 levels? Anyone growing some super-trees or bio-engineered plankton they can distribute? We have enormous landfills, and Florida is developing this plasma array thing to eat the garbage; is it a load of hooey? Where's that super-steam trash destroyer we heard about (if only I could find the link) that will reduces garbage to it's component elements like carbon? Where's the Peltier air conditioner? Why not create gigantic ones? Where's the development; is it happening? Is it funded?"

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
