Preventing Global Climate Change by Economically Recycling Carbon Dioxide into Useful Products

This talk describes progress toward CO2 recycling as a defense for global climate change.   Presently the world is making great strides in reducing CO2 emissions, but this merely delays rather than prevents CO2 buildup in the atmosphere.  CO2 recycling, on the other hand, offers the possibility of actually stopping CO2 buildup.  And it could be done economically and without people needing to make major lifestyle changes.  This talk will provide an overview of the present technology, and describe a roadmap to make CO2 recycling a reality.
