Carbon sequestration through carbon fiber and/or Fullerene production and use.
If we could divide C out of CO2 and use it to produce megastructures from conductive diameters of carbon nanotubes, could we not then build or grow a space elevator which would generate energy as it moves through the magnetosphere?
Could we not then use the power generated to divide even more C from CO2 building another and another etc until we had our own ground anchored planetary ring space station?
Would a filament actually generate any power? Would Fullerene be strong enough? How many G's would be experienced on the inside of a ring/ribbon station at that diameter/speed?
I apologize for the disjointed nature of the idea...to many things I do not know!
