The same experiment has been done for 100 years, and consistently reproduces the same results. Take a sealed, transparent tank of air. Shine sunlight on it. Take the temperature. Increase the percentage of CO2 in the tank. Shine sunlight. Take the temperature. The CO2-richer air has a higher temperature.

The packaging for the product described in the OP looks no different from five similar and safe products that are on the shelf at your local drugstore. The word "homeopathic" is in small type compared to other marketing words - which are the same words used on much safer products - and many people have no idea what "homeopathic" means in any case.

So yeah, no. This is a clear case of misleading packaging and marketing; whether it is a criminal case remains to be seen.

There are a few combined cycle GT power plants in the US (more in Europe), but the vast majority of gas turbines are used for cycling and summer/winter peak power. It is not cost efficient to use a recovery boiler in that type of service.

And in the US at least combined cycle GT plants have proved operationally difficult, with turndown and stability problems often requiring the use of duct burners to keep the boiler side stable (there goes the efficiency) and high forced outage rates on the boiler. I've seen a lot of large GT plants (50 - 150 MW) with space on the layout drawings for "future HRSG". That's where you park your truck.
