    CO2 reduction. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methanol From Alan Brett. A factory can suck in co2 from the air and make methanol from catalyst and hydrogen see equations in the link I have given. Selling the methanol pays for the manufacture. And the process is carbon neutral round a circle with no new co2. It seems co2 is too low a concentration in air so one needs to pipe it from the smokestack . Of a factory. After washing it. To also prevent embers from igniting things. The co2 will be captured into methanol-----other organic chemistry reactions can be tried. Also from methanol to something else. The hydrogen can be electrolysed from water with medical oxygen by product.

    The author criticises the government for what it did then, but are governments any better now? They still take a company estimate of the number of jobs, multiply it by $xxx and come up with re-election plans. The environment will continue to come last until they accept that our planet can't take the way we treat it, anymore.

    Some places make mistakes and learn from them, in Newfoundland however we take those past mistakes and amplify them to a new level such as the foolishness of Vale using ponds for poison storage. We shouldn't be lowering ourselves to this point, but once again we get held ransom by the promise of a few jobs. The work will be done and we will be left with yet another toxic area which we will be responsible for cleaning up, or should I say burying because nothing actually gets cleaned up in NL, it just gets put out of sight. Thank you Danny Williams, its nice to see the back of your head.
