Did you all see CBS News today about the 101 yr old inventor?

Why not carbon sequestration through cryogenics, some cryogenic method? CO2 sublimes at −78.5 C (−109.3 F) after all, what am I missing here?

Will have to investigate...

Good question. I imagine were it to work, it would be at some reduced efficiency? and probably quite constrained in application. Still, with CO2's relatively high sublimation temp, it's a tantalizing consideration. 60 Minutes last week had a similarly interesting story - that one about an older amateur scientist / inventor attempting to break down cellulose efficiently into usable product.

These are all nice stories,
all of these ideas have been worked on in some detail for a while.

Not saying people shouldn't be thinking up schemes, but they shouldn't be surprised
if someone else had thought them up previously. A real shame that we don't usually
publish articles about "failed" ideas.
