Not a Joke; UN Says Vacuuming CO2 Out of Air May Be Only Way to Save Planet Earth
Gateway Pundit ^ | 4/16/2014 | Jim Hoft

The UN says the last chance to save planet Earth may be vacuuming CO2 out of the sky and burying it.
And, they’re serious.
UPI reported:

In order to stave off the worst of global warming’s consequences, the world’s nations must find a way to reduce carbon emissions by 40 to 70 percent by 2050. That’s one of many claims made in the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The new report also suggests vacuuming up vast amounts of CO2 from the skies and storing it underground may be the most viable solution for mitigating the greenhouse gas effect in the short term.

It’s the third report on climate change released by the IPCC, a group of international climate scientists organized under the auspices of the United Nations. The group’s second report, which was released last month, predicted serious environmental and economic catastrophe in the latter half of the 20th century, should calls to slow global warming continue to go unanswered.

This latest report, released on Sunday, weighs the efficacy and plausibility of a variety of climate change policy solutions and mitigation options.

Meanwhile… Detroit just had its snowiest winter on record.

Someone should get to doing this. Right after the spaghetti harvest.

Truly amazing that this hoax still has legs....

You would think after 15 years of zero temperature increases seemingly intelligent people would at least have the common sense to stop making fools of themselves....

Trees soak up CO2, don't they? All we need is more trees.

This guy has the answer...

Yes, man made trees to capture CO2 and, wait... Bury it in the ground.

Pssst, liberals....Earth's geography and climate have been constantly changing for hundreds of millions of years. Where I'm currently sitting was covered in a sheet of ice that was a mile thick some 15,000 years ago in fact. Lake Erie is a few miles away from me. It was literally dug out and filled by that giant receding glacier along with the rest of the great lakes. You can't stop it. Might keep that in mind when you're paying your flood insurance premiums for your coastal condo.

Some times the UN is right on the mark. CO2 vacuum cleaners is indeed just what we need to implement. Here is an image of my first prototype:

The issue isn't cleaning up the environment, and never has been. The issue has been to find some pretext to shove a socialist dictatorship down our throats, when we've already rejected every other attempt at it.

So what happens if they pull the CO2 out, and they’re wrong? I’ve had botanists tell me that the current level of CO2, at ~400ppm, is low enough that it’s a significant limiting factor in plant fecundity. What arbitrary level are these so-called “scientists” saying the atmospheric concentration needs to be brought down to? What if it turns out their level is too low to sustain earth’s flora, and the biosphere starts dying?

Exactly. Best way to vacuum up CO2 properly is to plant a Tree or a Bush. They also vacuum up pollutants very well.

Industrial vacuuming up of CO2 is a boondoggle for politicians like Al Gore.

Schemes to remove CO2 from the air really concern me.

All biomass (plants, animals, microorganisms) is made of carbon molecules, which are all made from CO2. There must be a certain minimal concentration of CO2 in the air, or plants become unable to extract it. When there is too little CO2 in the air for plants to extract, they die. When they die, they decompose, eventually becoming CO2.

What will happen with attempts to remove the CO2 from the air, is that plant growth will slow, then stop. Some species are probably more able to extract CO2 than others, so the less able species will die off first. With their decay returning CO2 to the air, the concentration of CO2 will not decrease significantly. By the time enough CO2 has been extracted to see a real drop, a significant amount of biomass will be gone.

Without plants to convert CO2 into usable forms, animals will also die off.

Life on earth cannot survive without CO2. Yet these idiots talk as if the only way to save the earth is to get rid of CO2? Dear God, save us from these idiots!

Or, we could plant more trees?

Not sure how the left misses this point; other than the idea that planting trees doesn’t really extend their control over the American people.

Why does the UN hate poor people across the globe?

Because removing a plant growth stimulant from the atmosphere is certain to cause a rise in food costs.

I always thought it worked like this.

Excess Co2 is actually an increase in quality and quantity of food for plants.
Plants consume the Co2 and thus grow faster and bigger.
Plants consume the Co2 and release oxygen.
Co2 drops, and plants grow slower.

Thats why co2 is only 400 ppm in the atmosphere

Thats why nitrogen is 750,000 ppm in the atmosphere
Thats why oxygen is 241,000 ppm in the atmosphere
Thats why argon is 9,000 ppm in the atmosphere

Amazing how co2, such an extremely small part of the skies above, has so much control of the weather

They tried to stop logging for lumber over the spotted owl

now instead of planting trees just stop cutting them

it will be their goal

It may save planet Earth, but it will raise hell with mankind and it will be rough on the animals and trees they worship.

Wouldn’t most vegetation have trouble thriving if all CO2 were removed from the atmosphere?

“Dear God, save us from these idiots!”

I strongly suspect that is exactly what He’s poised to do before these juveniles cause total extinction with their greed and grandiose liberal plans. He will let it go just as long as it can possibly go; then He will pull down that celestial curtain. - Maranatha!

I was outside all morning with the vacuum running. When I went to bury the bag I discovered my wife had got one of those bagless vacuums. Now what do I do?

It's more about transferring American and Western wealth via carbon credit scheme... the socialist dictatorship is just the icing on the cake...
