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?"

Computers are unreliable, but humans are even more unreliable. Any system which depends on human reliability is unreliable. -- Gilb
