There is a serious possibility of destruction of our Oceans, they provide a huge part of our food supply and are key to many parts of our climate.

While the extraction of CO2 from seawater has been previously demonstrated, many challenges remain, including slow extraction rates and poor CO2 selectivity, among others. Here we describe a novel solution to these challenges – efficient CO2 extraction from seawater using bipolar membrane electrodialysis (BPMED). We characterize the performance of a custom designed and built CO2-from-seawater prototype, demonstrating the ability to extract 59% of the total dissolved inorganic carbon from seawater as CO2 gas with an electrochemical energy consumption of 242 kJ mol−1(CO2)."peer reviewed and published less than two months ago:Mar 25, 2012
- what a great find! These new technologies give me hope for developing a solution to our sustainability challenges.Mar 25, 2012
- The number of peer reviewed papers on synthesizing transportation fuel from CO2 has exploded in the past few months:

- What? Africa went through one of their worst famine's last summer and the US is facing one of our worst droughts. We WILL run out of food very soon.
The World is not ending though. Things are just adding up and we have to do something about it!Jul 23, 2012
