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

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?"
