Bill Gates Funds Geoengineering Project That Extracts CO2 From Atmosphere

Bill Gates is funding a group of Canadian scientists who now claim to be able to pull carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and create gasoline with it. The bold claim by the scientists is being pitched as a way to fight climate change while simultaneously creating more usable fuel. Industry could use the gasoline to power cars, large trucks, and jet airplanes.

The company, Carbon Engineering, is working in a partnership with Harvard researchers. Last month, we published an article that connected Bill Gates to Harvard researchers who are nearing the launch of a project that will block the sun. There may or may not be a connection between the two projects. In this particular case, Bill Gates is one of a number of investors in Carbon Engineering.

The “clean energy” project converts a metric ton of CO2 into gasoline, according to the researchers who published their findings in the scientific journal Joule last Thursday. The researchers claim they only use air, hydrogen, and limestone during the CO2 extraction process, making it “environmentally friendly.”

“Until now, research suggested it would cost $600 per ton to remove CO2 from the atmosphere using DAC technology, making it too expensive to be a feasible solution to removing legacy carbon at scale,” David Keith, Harvard Professor and founder of Carbon Energy said in a statement. “We now have the data and engineering to prove that DAC can achieve costs below $100 per ton.”

The same researchers believe they could use similar technology to seal off greenhouse gases in the earth. To do so, the scientists would need to shoot gases into the earth.

A test plant in Squamish, British Columbia has already been carrying out CO2 extraction projects. The researchers believe the project can be scaled into a more global-format by 2021.

  1. Bill Gates gave HPV to young girls in India causing deaths and India the country, threw him out of the country. Bill Gates is an idiot, a dangerous idiot.

    I am taking a huge breath; we are at 400 ppm (.04%) CO2 (mind boggling minuscule). This planet and life have enjoyed 2000 ppm and UP! in the past BEFORE humans. .2% CO2. Temperature precedes CO2! Not the other way round! Arghhh!

    Now listen up! at 150 ppm ALL PLANTS DIE. Did you get that? 150 ppm or .015%.

    We are at 400 ppm….we are great at much higher CO2 levels! Any lower and we will cause all life to die on this planet! You do gooders will kill all of life because you don’t understand science, you are unable to suss things out with your own brains and you mimic idiot politicians who control the purse strings to scientist’s grants and of course the scientists will say what ever they are told to say to get the money with which to pay their own bills, feed their families!

    150 (death of plants)……….400ppm now………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….2000ppm

  2. I guess nobody knows everything, let’s not idolize.
    CO2 is not very good at holding heat, not as good as water vapor, although neither compounds are polluting or causing climate changes. CO2 is hydrophillic and there is lots of it in the ocean waters. The CO2 is released as the oceans warm up. The bulk of the increased CO2 in the atmosphere is not from burning hydrocarbon fuels but from the oceans.

    CO2 is beneficial to plants as it feeds photosynthesis. People need it to buffer body fluids and kickstart the next breath.

    I recommend looking at air pollution and sun activity as the causes of climate change.
