    How about this then?

    MIT engineers develop a new way to remove carbon dioxide from air.

    So, to lower the CO₂ atmospheric level to 200 ppm, what will it take using the MIT method?

    The CO2 level is already nearly too low for optimum plant growth. Lowering it any more will contribute to desertification and deforestation, not due to overharvesting but due to slow or even stalled replacement plant growth.

    The good news is that Douglas Firs tolerate low levels very well. So eventually the firs will take over as the dominant large plantlife on this miserable planet Dirt.

    You should work for the local natural gas franchise that advertises that they're fighting climate change by distributing clean methane.

    Why not try to not emit greenhouse gases in the first place? Isn't that the simplest way?

    Oxford?

    CO2 utilisation could sequester up to 10 gigatonnes a year.

    Blue-sky article. How much could we sequester if we really went all-in in all of the possible technologies?

    If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.

    This article about a Star Trek TNG episode came up on my news feed for some reason:

    https://io9.gizmodo.com/when-star-trek-the-next-generation-was-bad-it-was-tru-1841069942

    I read with open mouth, not actually believing this got made. Duracell look away now....

    Space Irish....rolling around in hay and hitting the liquor bottle every minute...

    Homage of sorts to the original Star Trek, which occasionally went over the deep end of space too.

    Oh, I remember that episode very well. The muscle memory of the cringing is still strong. Voyager’s “Katie O’Claire” stage oirish shtick wasn’t much better.
