Bill Gates-Backed Carbon Capture Plant Does The Work Of 40 Million Trees

2 min read

In Squamish, British Columbia, there’s a company that wants to stop climate change by sucking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.

It’s called Carbon Engineering, and it uses a combination of giant fans and complex chemical processes to remove carbon dioxide from the air in a procedure known as Direct Air Capture.

Direct Air Capture isn’t new, but Carbon Engineering says its technology has advanced enough for it to finally make financial sense.

The company is backed by Bill Gates — but also by the oil giants Chevron, BHP, and Occidental. These partnerships will bring Carbon Engineering’s tech to market by using the captured carbon to make synthetic fuels and and help extract more oil from the ground.

Will Carbon Engineering’s technology decrease the amount of CO2 in the air, or is it going to prolong our dependence on fossil fuels?

    Bill Gates has been funding geo-engineering, for weather manipulation, and poisoning the air we breath we aluminum for 'decades'. This is a horrific plan to destroy our planet. The Sun is why we have LIFE!!! We are actually entering in a mini ice age. Has everyone already forgot the COLD we had to endure last winter???? How can anyone believes a word from this man, especially when all his plans are to destroy. Like vaccines, GM mosquitos, geo-engineering and many, many other horrific plans that he funds behind the scenes. Those fires most likely were set by these criminals so they have an excuse to expose their evil plans, as if they are saving us!! The hero!!! This person will come down as one of the biggest criminals ever! He puts Hitler to shame!!!

    1:55 “or used to create products like fuels” that’s why the big oil companies are backing them. They don’t want to save the world, they want to ensure they don’t run out of fuel to sell.

    We can use the CO2 in the atmosphere, and still use such technology. Biofuel along with recaptured carbon for fuel is a good thing. But with the beginning of this we really still need to keep bringing carbon up to the surface using fossil fuels, how can you change fuel companies into structures we find sustainable? Well for one thing do not tear them apart just for existing.

    What’s the point in heating the CaCO2 pellets to regenerate the gaseous carbon dioxide to store underground after spending all that energy to precipitate the carbon in the first place? (1:50)

    We still need trees to make OXYGEN !
    This technology will make us very careless with our natural oxygen makers, TREES ! 🌲 🌳 🌲 🌳 🌲 🌳 🌲 🌳 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲

    Sorry but carbon capture is a scam to help big oil companies maintain their monopoly. And the taxpayers pay for it.
