There is no capacity today or proven method of CO2 removal at any scale - though this is now unavoidable.​ The working prototype of the best and safest method is mechanical air removal with chemical conversion to solid carbonate. Rapid REPLACEMENT of all world fossil fuel energy by clean, zero-carbon energy must and can start immediately.
