How Do We Manage Decarbonization Goals? First—Need to Understand What Five Gases Pollute? And Where They Come From; Then How To Capture & Store;

CLIMATE & CARBONIZATION 

SITUATION:
First —Understand that  ——
 Five gases: nitrogen, oxygen, water vapor, argon, & carbon dioxide in air.
 Several other compounds are also present such as water vapor,
 Air can contain as much as 5% water vapor, commonly ranging from 1-3%.

Then—Realize that the Time has Come for Direct Air Capture of Carbon;

SIGNIFICANCE
Six pollutants are carbon monoxide, lead, nitrogen oxides, ground-level ozone,
And particle pollution (often referred to as particulate matter), and sulfur oxides.
Such pollutants are the strongest evidence for public health concern
Include particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide (CO), ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and sulphur dioxide (SO2

SOLUTIONS:
The Time has Come for Direct Air Capture
Need to capture carbon dioxide from atmosphere & store underground
Or use to create & produce other materials such as concrete.

STATS:
 Atmosphere is 78 % nitrogen, 21 %t oxygen, 0.9 % argon.1 % other gases.
 Trace amounts of carbon dioxide, methane, water vapor, & neon in gases
 Carbon dioxide is the fourth most abundant component of dry air.
 Now has concentration of over 400 ppm (parts per million) in the atmosphere.
 Before industrial activity, there was around 270 ppm in the atmosphere;
Air can contain as much as 5% water vapor, commonly ranging from 1-3%.
