Obviously you don't use CO2 to generate power. You use geothermal energy to generate power. And CO2 as the 'working fluid' in the heat exchange.
Too bad they can't hire science writers with at least a grade eight education in science. But I guess the crazy subject line sells.

You might have included grade school arithmetic in your critique. Keeping CO2 underground and out of the atmosphere or sequestering it in order to "save" the planet is beyond stupid. Like spitting in the ocean is the common way of illustrating the fallacy.

Why would any AGW'er with your astonishing knowlege of AGW "science" want to use geothermal energy to generate power with CO2 as the 'working fluid' in the heat exchange.?
Why don't you just use the CO2 in the atmosphere to generate power ???
Hell, there is a whopping 324 w/m^2 being Back Radiated from the Cold Atmosphere CO2 to the Warmer Earth DAY and NIGHT according to the IPCC and that Genius, Kevin Trenberth.
All the wimpy Sun can manage is a measily 168 w/m^2 and only during the Day.
Now is the chance to prove how great your AGW "science" is and take full advantage of the AWESOME POWER of Back Radiation that can HEAT-UP an ENTIRE PLANET.
You can really show those "science writers with at least a grade eight education" how it's done!!
And, it's ALL GREEN ENERGY !!!
I can see a Nobel Prize in Hyper-ody's future, just like that other Genius Al Gore.
