  1.  
    I thought heat was red.

    There are no green stars, you know. That has to mean something.
  2.  
    could it mean that Stars lack chlorophyill ?

    Zero Carbon construction?

    No mention at all is made of how the electrical power that the equipment uses is produced, nor of the use of concrete, which production is a huge GHG producer. I call "greenwashing" on the Beeb.

    The main vision is Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) which is an emissions reducing technology that is currently being used in Canada and around the world. It captures the carbon before, during and after combustion and then either safely stores it or makes it available for use in products such as concrete.


    Huh? The process of making cement (roasting limestone) emits huge amounts of CO₂; why would they need more?

    It was a good idea fifty years ago. Too late now.

    The UT team used nitrate, instead of the typical nitrogen, to bond with carbon dioxide. And the catalyst solution is composed of indium hydroxide nanomaterials.


    Well, yeah--but where does the nitrate come from? Duh.

    The point the article is making is that it takes less energy to break the N-O bonds in NO₃¯ ions than it it does in free N₂.

    Fine, but how does one get to the NO₃¯, but by breaking the N₂ triple bond?
