    Resonance.
    When applied to single atoms, every atom has a different size(guess).
    So can elements be withdrawn from a compound via oscillation using voltage amperage and magnetism in harmony ?
    Does the frequency/frequencies(expansion through heat) match wavelength with the size of the atom for oscillation to occur (using minimum power and maximum select-ability) ?

    If this is right and carbon can be separated from fossil fuel power stations via resonance, I think there might be a few companies that might want a few boxes of single carbon atoms. ie, graphene manufacture.
    (I hope you guessed I meant separating carbon from exhaust gasses.)

    In this vid. you can see that the frequency is resonating the rim of the glass, parabolic resonance.

    Aside,
    This applies to any parabola right ? The brain pathways have convolutions(parabolas) are they all tuned to different frequencies by size ?
    These change as our opinions change.(Brain plasticity).

    There are many ways of separating carbon from exhaust gases in the form of CO2. There are not many ways of separating C from CO2 so we are stuck with the problem of stuffing the CO2 down holes in the ground. I don't know how resonance would separate carbon from CO2, but any method at all has to overcome the bond energy between the atoms, and the energy to provide the resonance (if it can do anything) has to be provided from some external source - such as an electric power generating station burning coal.

    More promising, in my opinion, is development of artificial photosynthesis, in which the energy to break the O-C-O bonds comes directly from the sun and the products are useful.

    If you think that global warming is caused by excess CO2 then cut down all the trees you can find, turn them into wooden items.

    Thus a reduced need for plastics, and more important you are locking up CO2 in the form of wood where it will be saftly stored for all the time it is a table - then grow more trees. use more paper not less, go back to wooden railway sleepers and not concrete etc etc etc!.

    And remember a tree or plant can only put back the amount of CO2 it absorbed whilst growing, thus plants (or their eradication) cannot be the cause of increasing amounts of CO2 in the atmosphere.

    You've made several stupid comments in these forums, but this post is definitely in the running for the most oblivious, off topic, and ridiculous.

    The filter would be a load I agree but the benefit could outweigh that.
    We cannot measure single atoms(yet) to find the wavelength to match.

    Trees absorb CO2, man produces CO2 when cutting trees, by hand or machine. This is nothing to do with resonance.
    Having said that cutting blade teeth are designed to match the size of the particles of debris so in some obscure way you are on topic, but I don't think that is what you meant.

    Basically an electric filter, because we can't make small enough holes in material

    Vortices spinning create pressure differentials that attract large objects to the centre, the speed of the vortex changes the size of particle(eg,ice) that can be drawn to the bottom of the vortex vessel.
    So can we make an electric grid with enough power to separate molecules ?
    If so could we create eddy currents in the squares of the grid ?
    Could we scale them to pass carbon not oxygen, and or vice versa ?

    Land requirement and ecological/habitat destruction, loss of species. We have lost enough just cutting roads to get oil.

    Consider the co2 generated machining/carving wood compared to injection or blow moulding, if you are talking about replacing all plastic with wood how will you compete with the speed of injection/blow moulding? How many industrial units consuming power would that take ?
