5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to what may become one of the best solutions to climate change and ocean acidification, March 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Suck It Up: How capturing carbon from the air can help solve the climate crisis (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
A year ago I read an article about ocean acidity increasing by 30% in recent years, a leading suspect in the death of coral reefs, due to the ocean absorbing more carbon dioxide from the air. That was the first time I understood that for the health of the planet, including the delicate ocean ecosystem, it is not enough to curb carbon dioxide emissions. We have to actually reverse course, and find a way to remove the excess carbon dioxide already in the air. I started reading about carbon dioxide removal techonologies, and the daunting task of implementing it on a global scale. Are those developing this technology pursuing a ridiculously far fetched fantasy, or are they pioneers in the best solution we have available?

"Suck It Up" is an excellent introduction to what is at stake, the history behind this approach, and the people and companies who are leading the way in the early development of carbon capture technology. It also gives fair voice to skeptics who doubt the technology is a viable solution,and discusses other potential solutions such as algae fuel facilities. I applaud Mark Guntner for furthering this dicussion with "Suck It UP", and strongly recommend it.
