I won't do it . Just too much trust in a computer and I have seen all my devices freeze up or break down and I rather not be that far up when it happens . It will be interesting when we have autonomous cars if I can place my trust in them .

Definitely Elon Musk has had a few set backs with Tesla and Space Ex . If he can find a quicker charger and less start up cost before the big auto makers he will have a very short window to get a return on the patent .

I was surprised that the 2018 VW Golf is having semi autonomous modes like Traffic Jam mode where the car brakes and accelerates by itself .

It's interesting at the speed of innovation for the average guy to buy into.

Wont be long and we will be forced to. Insurance companies will make it so its impossible to afford to drive.

This is just the kind of thing I would have done in junior high bio class, if I'd had the know-how:

Climeworks will implement it's NEW CO2 Collector on May 31st, in Hinwil Switzerland, which scrubs CO2 from the atmosphere. It's not going to make much of an impact, only removing 900 tonnes of CO2 per year, but it's a start. Over time, just like every other form of technology, it will become cheaper and more efficient - this unit is 18 times more effective than the unit produced in 2014. It's a positive step towards ending global warming. :thup:

Okay but will stop climate changing..

And what happens when the co2 isnt the reason for "warming"

From everything I've read, if CO2 decreases, so will the temperature.

Maybe..maybe we should tax us more to drop temps

Anyway, this is the FIRST step in ending Global Warming. Yes, 900 tonnes / year is a drop in the bucket, but when this company, and others, find more efficient ways to remove CO2, it will get better. And when we find the right device, whether it's this one or another, countries will buy these machines in large numbers, and help eradicate this issue. :thup:

Instead of coast of windmills, think of a country side of the CO2 removing fans.
