GHE theory says that without it Earth would become a -18 C, 255 K, ball of ice.

That is just flat wrong.

“TFK_bams09” GHE heat balance graphic shows 396 W/m^2 of LWIR “extra” energy upwelling from the surface radiating as a 16 C BB (violating LoT1), 333 “back” radiates (violating LoT 2) with a duplicate net 63 reaching ToA (violating LoT1 and GAAP).

That also is just flat wrong.

There is no GHE.

GHGs do not do anything.

CAGW is a big fat NWO scam!

The subsidy of CO2 sequestration (CCUS) rising from $50 to $85 a ton is a bad joke.

The actual cost (subsidy) is at least twice that, not to mention the fact that CCUS, energetically, is a 100% waste from the outset.

CCUS, as described in Net Zero 2050, would remove 1 part per million of atmospheric CO2 by 2050!

That means CCUS is also a very expensive bad joke, costing over $130 trillion if it is ever implemented.

By comparison, photosynthesis alone removes about 50 PPM of CO2 annually.

Our brave new world leaders would accomplish in 30 years what photosynthesis does in one week.

So, all of humanity's plans are actually irrelevant compared with plants and thankfully so.

However, our political leaders are clearly GODS in their own minds.

To add to the ridiculousness of carbon capture, William Happer has shown [without refutation] that infrared absorption by CO2 is nearly saturated, and that doubling of CO2 from 400 to 800 ppm would result in less than 1C temperature increase, so further reductions in CO2 are pointless. It is hard to understand why any one is working on carbon capture or, for that matter, reducing carbon emissions, when further increase in CO2 will have no effect on global temperature.

This is an extremely important point, Donald. Thank you for bringing it up. Happer's research is irrefutable, and the truth of it is well known in scientific circles. This, too, shows that they are using CO2 as a smokescreen to hide their true agenda: land grab, depopulation, preventing access to reliable/affordable electricity, world government.

The only deployed carbon capture system in the United States, at the Petra Nova power plant, had a capital cost of $8/watt. It lasted a few years and was then abandoned because it didn't work. This is described in my new book "Where Will We Get Our Energy?" (no apologies for the shameless plug).

Plugs welcome, Van! Thanks for the reference.

Suggest that where possible that the authors write a CALL to Action with a short message we can send to the ones we want to know that we do not like what they ar doing

Very important point, Barbara. Thanks for raising it. Of course it's essential to write to your U.S. Representative and both U.S. Senators. But it's also important to educate state and local elected (and appointed) officials. Depending on the location, these carbon capture decisions are made at the county level and/or by an appointed public utilities commission at the state level. It's crucial to stay on top of these Agenda 2030 items implemented at these close-to-home levels.

Excellent point, it's a loosing game - nothing comes free. I've done a similar calculation showing EVs add a more CO2 to the atmosphere than a gas powered vehicle, even if you assume a slight efficiency increase in the point of use energy consumption. I looked at CA's EV mandate and my assessment shows that they would need to build at least ~22 base-load power plants to satisfy the increased EV electrical power demand.

There's a book that offers answers to environmental wackomoles. Get Real: A Positive Solution to Climate Change by David Munson. Munson is a rancher and scientist and hits all the hot buttons.

The C-capture conspiracy theories smacks of money laundering and fraud to me.

EPA might be demanding CCS, but no rational utility management would install CCS on an existing coal plant and no rational utility commission would approve such an investment.

There are two obvious answers to the question you pose:

1 Because it supports the myth of a climate crisis, which is a major plank of the globalists' totalitarian takeover bid.

2 Money. I assume I don't need to enlarge.

Thank you for your observation, Michael. Yes, #1 is a fringe benefit of carbon capture technologies, and #2 is a short-term goal. In fact, there are many goals, including the aim to strain our food supplies (since much of the affected land is farmland, and the easements that private companies are trying to obtain by eminent domain prevent landowners from access to the land in perpetuity). The overarching long-term goal is the decades-running land grab.

Very informative, thank you.

This is what happens when we allow solutions to come from the top-down instead of the bottom-up. Top down solutions are always centralized and thus corruptible.

We need entirely new systems of problem solving. Like collective “swarm” intelligence systems.
