    Richard Branson, one of Britains richest men and head of the Virgin group has offered a 25 million pound prize. Effectively hes saying htat its all well and good to reduce carbon emmissions, but we must also attempt to remove the pre exisitng crap from the atmosphere.

    Any ideas ppl-does any machinery exist to remove CO2 from the atmosphere (other than TREES lol).

    Ha Ha Ha - nice try - I'll Tell Richard first! - you'll have to look harder than that for the answer!
    THe guy's a nidjut - without doing any maths there's a good chance the energy used to run the machinery will create more CO2 than it would remove - tha't called moving the problem - STOP producing plastics start making things out of wood again - that locks up CO2 for the life of the product

    Yes, wait until they switch the LHC on in november and shoot a few black-holes up there. That will clean the atmos for you good and proper.

    Can I have my twenty five million pound now please?
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.
