THe whole notion of carbon sequestering is moronic especially since its role in global warming is unproven. Global warming is a natural phenomina and we are fools to think we are causing it. The last global warming period was accompanied by a sharp rise in CO2 rate but back then there was no large consumption of fossil fuel to blame it on. Common to both global warming periods is also a marked increase in solar heat flux. This is the true culprit not CO2.

Sounds like you have it all figured out there Medina reader. Perhaps you should go tell the thousands of scientists around the world, studying the MANY different ways in which excess atmospheric CO2 is negatively affecting our planet (beyond just raising temperatures), and tell them that they're all wrong.
Stop relying on simple, static, baseless assumptions about how the world works and instead try reading. There are tons of scientific articles and journals - written by researchers in almost every aspect of environmental science - that discuss the effects of excess carbon dioxide.
To assume that excess CO2 has no role - and to state it so outrightly (without any proof or justification)- in the global warming process proves to the rest of the world that you simply DON'T READ.
Wake the f&*@ up.

either way, the captured CO2 can be used for various applications.

XEKE.com predicts that as we enter a time of global cooling, that the liberal media, biased scientific community, and immoral politicians will stop using the term "global warming," and replace it with "climate change," so that they can continue to try to eliminate technological advances, and destroy America.

Great prediction, considering they did just that about three years ago (switch from GW to CC).

Rather than CO2, seems to me the real problem is Methane. Especially when any politician or nutcase with an agenda (cha-ching) his or her mouth.

Too bad many of the proposed solutions to wean us off of fossil fuels require great improvements in technology...oops!

The earth is suppose to warm up because it was destroyed by water the first time and next time it will be fire. So it will be getting a lot warmer until it burst into flames!
