Carbon scrubbers what stop too much C02 being released..

So once the TONNES of carbon are ensnared by the scrubbers is it then transported off site in lorries, or what? :think:

If there was one factory, it would not be a problem. I maintain this simple argument.

I think they use pipes. Lots and lots of pipes. Pipes carry the CO2 to storage reservoirs. This is what I think happens.

The idea is to bind the CO2 in chemically stable forms that can be stored underground


Storage of the CO
2 is envisaged either in deep geological formations, or in the form of mineral carbonates. Deep ocean storage is not currently considered feasible due to the associated effect of ocean acidification.[8] Geological formations are currently considered the most promising sequestration sites. The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) reported that North America has enough storage capacity for more than 900 years worth of carbon dioxide at current production rates.[9] A general problem is that long term predictions about submarine or underground storage security are very difficult and uncertain, and there is still the risk that CO
2 might leak into the atmosphere.[

Why do you think that?

The carbon is turned into pencils and shipped to Proxima Centauri, where there is a shortage of pencils.

By pipe, or by road/sea tankers.

Some of that carbon can be sequestered, for example in the production of concrete, or converted into biomass (feeding algae CO2) used to produce other items, or even in underground vaults (geological trapping) where it is converted under pressure into a liquid and kept kilometres below the surface. Some may be used as fuels.

Even better kill off 5 billion people, and we'll be fine?

This is a) cross-posting and b) a strawman misrepresentation of what I wrote.

Not sure what you think you're going to achieve, but nothing beneficial I can assure you.
