If SRI can use this to capture the CO2 from the hot air of some current and former members of the Menlo Park City Council then it has a winner!

I have found 12 different type of devices on my property alone that can absorb atmospheric CO2. Not only can they do that, but can also produce clean oxygen. These devices are called trees. #FTW
