The world's biggest carbon-sucking machine, billed as a tool to reduce climate change, has been switched on in Iceland.The $15 million (£10.8 million) 'direct air capture' (DAC) machine, created by Zurich-based company Climeworks, launched on Wednesday at the Hellisheiði Power Station, Iceland. Called Orca, it will capture 4,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year as part of efforts to reduce levels of the greenhouse gas in the atmosphere – equivalent to the annual emissions from about 790 cars.However, this total is a mere fraction of global CO2 emissions,

Another 'Snake Oil' effort. We're already in a cooling trend. Have been for the last ten years. They are just trying to take credit for it.

So no more plants? They breathe the CO2 and turn it into O2. We breathe in the O2 and turn it into CO2. God is amazing.

Considering that Katla, one of Iceland's largest volcanoes, produces somewhere between 12,000 to 24,000 tons of carbon dioxide every DAY (2016, 2017 estimate:, it seems like they've got their work cut out for them to start making any difference, even in Iceland.

Reply 10 - Posted by: mjwall69 9/10/2021 6:51:08 AM (No. 909686) This link is to an article about one volcano on Iceland that produces 4% of all GLOBAL CO2. Making a machine, that runs on electricity, not unicorn farts, to draw 4k tons of CO2 from the air around a volcano that's producing upwards of 12k tons, on top of all the other sources there, is putting a band aid on a severed limb. Does someone actually think this is doing something? If you google "waste of time" this should be the first hit.

Is this some kind of a joke? The "carbon sucking machine" is a scam akin to carbon credits. I am to believe intelligent or even low cog adults believe that a machine can suck enough carbon out of Earth's atmosphere so as to affect the Earth's temperature? If you believe such things maybe you deserve the chaotic misery of the life you live.

It appears that Iceland is trying to take care of their (non-existent) carbon problem the same way they took care of their Down Syndrome problem. If you don’t remember the story - they eliminated Down Syndrome from their country by sucking all of the afflicted unborn out of the womb.

The Amazon forest alone produces all the oxygen we need, plus removes the vast majority of C02 present in our atmosphere. This doesn't include all the other forests on earth. Perhaps all that tree planting over the last forty years has reduced the amount of C02 in the atmosphere causing the global cooling we're experiencing now. Perhaps too many trees is what caused the ice age 100,000 years ago.

Many scientist, including Patrick Moore who wrote "Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout," believe that carbon is good for the environment and we need more of it. So maybe the liberals have it backwards. That's how they "solve" problems. They screw everything up and spend billions to fix problems that don't exist.

Another scam to separate the rich but ignorant and gullible, emotionally driven morons from their money. They'll feel virtuous for giving money to such a device, but are too stupid to grasp that the climate changes due to the Sun, not humans, and our planet has a great set of feedback loops built in to take advantage of increased carbon dioxide from any source.

And meanwhile, the Chinese dump thousands of times that much into the air, without batting an eye and with nobody even complaining. CO2 is a harmless trace gas which has essentially zero effect on the climate, and is very beneficial for green plant growth.

That sucks. There is no global warming problem, the effect of anything man does to influence climate is trivial compared to the effect of regular variation in the amount of energy the earth receives from the sun, due to both the variation in the suns output and the variation in the distance of the earth from the sun. Many people don't realize the distance from the earth to the sun varies over time because the orbit is not a perfect circle. The sun also has regular cycles in its outputs over long periods of time. The mean temperature of the earth is somewhat lower than it has been in the long past and is currently in decline. The global warming fraud has run on for much too long now.

How did Co2 become evil? The IPCC’s attribution methodology is fundamentally flawed by Ross McKitrick In a nut: For 20 years AT99 has held CO2 as the evil gas that must be removed before we all parish from Global Warming. Professor Ross McKitrick in 2019 found a problem with the math used and asked the authors Myles Allen and Simon Tett (AT99) to respond. "One day after the IPCC released the AR6 I published a paper in Climate Dynamics showing that their (AT99) “Optimal Fingerprinting” methodology on which they have long relied for attributing climate change to greenhouse gases is seriously flawed and its results are unreliable and largely meaningless." The results are the CO2 myth is dead, it does not cause warming therefore we can say AWG is dead. The question now is why it took 20 years for find this mathematical error. Every time someone comes up with an evil Co2 story we need to force them to answer Professor Ross McKitrick questions, they can't.

So, their wonder machine will remove 8,000,000 pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere. An estimate by scientists ( is that volcanos emit 300 - 400 million metric tons of CO2 per year. The article is interesting, as it estimates the sequestered carbon located in the earth itself as well as free CO2 in the atmosphere and oceans. Our CO2 outputs are but a single flea bite on a St. Bernard.

I wonder if has occurred to them that plants need CO2 to exist. Higher levels of CO2 help plants to grow better. Better plant crops help to feed the ever growing population. If they succeed in significant reduction in CO2, it could result in reduced food production and starvation. The Medieval warming period was warmer than now and produced bumper crops. Before we take drastic measures to play God, it would be a good idea to reflect on what we are doing.

"Called Orca, it will capture 4,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year as part of efforts to reduce levels of the greenhouse gas in the atmosphere – equivalent to the annual emissions from about 790 cars." So for $15 million, you've essentially accomplished getting 790 of approximately one billion cars off the road. Impressive.

This whole climate/CO2 thing is fake and these leftists all know it. There may be some people who have bought into it, but it's not real. Anyone who understands how the earth itself recycles everything can see it clearly. Air pollution will recycle back to the earth. Polluted air is heavier and it will come back down eventually. The BP oil spill happened and everybody went into a panic. Yes, we had to clean off the birds, etc, but Rush Limbaugh said on his program that the oil would recycle itself back thru the ocean. He said that soon they wouldn't be able to find any more oil. Sure enough, when they went out to find the rest of the oil, it was gone. What these alarmists don't even consider is that the earth itself spews oil on the ocean floor all the time because pressure builds up below. So the earth recycles daily.

Once again, the replies posted on Lucianne point out the thing about our side (the side that loves freedom and despises tyranny) that causes me the most anguish: we so often allow the enemy to set the terms and the vocabulary of the debate. My dear friends and compatriots, CARBON DIOXIDE IS NOT A POLLUTANT! It is an essential, critical element of life on this planet. One of the major victories for our enemy was convincing the public that plant food is hazardous. For some reason, we go along with this lie and perpetuate it. We shoot ourselves in the foot on every issue.

Story says the "CO2 reacts with the basalt rock and turns into stone within a few years." I assume then after a few more years a volcano (Iceland is just an island that is a big volcano) will re-melt the rock at release all the CO2, hence the CO2 cycle.

Let's do the math. 286,900,000 registered vehicles in 2020. say 10% are electric = 258,210,000 / 790 (the number of cars CO2 emission this machine suck out) = 326,848 machines needed just to take care of the CO2 from cars in the US X $15,000,000 each = $4,902,721,518,987 just for the vehicles in the US. That is almost 5 Trillion Dollars! What a deal. The leftists will add these to their Green New Steal immediately.

Jon Lynch was 13 years old when he woke up on September 11, 2001 - not knowing that he would never see his father again. Like any other normal day, Lynch rolled out of bed, had breakfast and went to school. It all seemed unremarkable; until it wasn't.He was sitting in his middle-school art class in Whitehall, Pennsylvania, when the teacher turned on the television to witness black smoke billowing out of the first tower of the World Trade Center.

Former President Donald Trump toyed with the idea of running for mayor of New York on Saturday if he were to decide against another presidential bid.Trump, who visited the city to mark the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, met with a group of officers with the New York Police Department and answered questions, including one about the prospect of a mayoral run. "Well, that's an interesting question," Trump responded to laughs, leaning into his tough-on-crime message. "I would love that. We could straighten it out. I'd say, 'Fellas, good luck, go to town.' They'd be announcing in one week, 'There's no crime in this city.'"

Sept. 11, 2001, marked the start of a new era for Muslims in the United States. Shortly after al-Qaida terrorists attacked the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, many Muslims, as well as other Arab Americans, became the targets of anger and racism. Mosques were burned or destroyed and death threats and harassment followed many Muslims in the weeks following the attacks, according to congressional testimony from the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2011. Some victims were beaten, attacked or held at gunpoint for merely being perceived as Muslim, the organization said. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who is Muslim, reflected on

The study also showed that unvaccinated people were 4 1/2 times more likely to contract COVID-19 than the fully vaccinated. The studies come just one day after President Biden announced a new rule
