Carbon Capture Didn’t Make Sense 12 Years Ago And It Doesn’t Make Sense Now

Imagine you mine for metal and for every 4 kg you get, you have to process 1000 kg and dump 996 kg back down the hole. Can it be done? Sure it can. Is it being done with certain metals? Yes, if they are valuable enough we do that. By that count, CO2 must be extremely valuable. Removing CO2 from the ambient air is not only extremely wasteful and hence expensive. It serves no purpose at all on top.
