CO2 in our atmosphere is quite a big problem and it's time we start to think about how to fix it. This new machine works a lot like a giant electric tree and sucks CO2 out of the atmosphere.

Technologists often ignore the bigger business models. For example:
> How much carbon is released by all the mining & industrial processes necessary to manufacture one unit of this equipment? 
> How long will this unit take to remove that much carbon, plus the incremental carbon released to make the electricity to drive it?
> What is the real world useful life of this unit?
> What is the cost of recycling broken units?

Some technologists even ignore the ecology they are trying to improve:
> Most despeciation is not caused directly by increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, but by decreasing habitats. 
> Significant amounts of carbon dioxide is absorbed by the oceans.

As technology increases and robotic helpers become more prevalent, it's important to think about what traits we want our robot caretakers to embody. Would you want something that looks like a human or something more artificial looking?

You are not ready for such challenges as the base on the moon and fly to Mars. Your visions are so technically primitive and complicated at the same time as your missile technology. You have no idea of the gravity technology -GT, which is the basis for the second phase of development of cosmonautics.

Congratulations to the first place winner of the Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE​, team Sunburst Sensors! Especially impressive because they come from Montana! They had to import ocean water!

We're proud of the accomplishments of all the teams who competed in this prize, and we look forward to the change your technologies will bring to the greater understanding and preservation of the world's oceans.

Disappointed that this didn't go to people who were actually doing anything about it, e.g., http://talknicer.com/co2extraction.pdf
which, incidentally, is the most efficient form of desalination in addition to removing carbon from the ocean and atmosphere, at liters per watt per hour.

Making the Impossible Possible.
Introduction
Founded in 1995, XPRIZE is the leading nonprofit organization solving the world’s Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself.  The organization motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital for the benefit of humanity. 

XPRIZE conducts competitions in five Prize Groups: 
Learning; Global Development; Energy & Environment; Life Sciences; and Exploration (Ocean and Deep Space).  

Prizes won include the $10 million Ansari XPRIZE for private, suborbital space flight; the $10 million Progressive Insurance Automotive XPRIZE for creating safe, affordable, production-capable vehicles that exceed 100 MPG energy equivalent (MPGe); $1.4 million Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE for solutions to speed the pace of cleaning up seawater surface oil resulting from spillage; and the $2 million Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander XCHALLENGE for advanced rocket development. 

Active prizes include the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE, the $10 million Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, the the $2.25 million Nokia Sensing XCHALLENGE and the $2 million Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE.  To learn more about the XPRIZE, please visit http://www.xprize.org
