Scientists Turn Evil Carbon Dioxide Into Chalk

1929

We all know that few things fire up an ecostatist more than power plants belching out murderous CO2 into the very sensitive and weak atmosphere. But today we learned that some scientists were able to capture this poison gas and turn it into… chalk. Or, to be more precise, carbonate minerals in basaltic rocks.

Awesome!

One day your children may be able to work on their reading, writing, and arithmetic with the solidified nightmares of climate change enthusiasts.

All hysteric anti-science loon teasing aside, this is a very cool development. And yet another illustration of why we should seek to use science to actually fix potential environmental problems, instead of using it as an excuse to empower leftist totalitarian nanny-statists.
