Truthout: Getting to 350: What It Will Take to Fix Global Warming

"We can build machines to extract CO2 directly from the air. Even with maximum CO2 removal by improved farming and forestry, and even with rapid, steady decreases in fossil fuel emissions, CO2 would still exceed 350 ppm in year 2100, threatening civilization. Therefore, direct removal of CO2 from air is essential, Hansen calculates."

Eureka Alert: A biological solution to carbon capture and recycling?

"Scientists at the University of Dundee have discovered that E. coli bacteria could hold the key to an efficient method of capturing and storing or recycling carbon dioxide. Cutting carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to slow down and even reverse global warming has been posited as humankind's greatest challenge. It is a goal that is subject to considerable political and societal hurdles, but it also remains a technological challenge. New ways of capturing and storing CO2 will be needed. Now, normally harmless gut bacteria have been shown to have the ability to play a crucial role."
