To capture the carbon accumulated in the atmosphere since it is black it absorbs the sun beams and stops the temperature of being released.

The idea is to collect the carbon accumulated in the atmosphere in some kind of special containers and transfer it to the carbon recyclers. If seems weird and so far nobody accepted to help me or adopt this idea as usual.and it an entrance I mean it leads to another idea which allow to a direct carbon capture from the moteors exhaust for example

  • Aug 14 2013: As I understand it, the major components of the "air" in the atmosphere is carbon dioxide or CO2. It is actually colorless. The large carbon "molecules", C60 or C70; from smoke stacks is called black soot. The black soot in the air, unfortunately, sinks to the ground quickly and wouldn't stay in the air very long. The soot and other particles from the volcano explosion does temporarily cool down the surface temperature a little bit, because they are emitted in large quantities and with huge upward forces from the volcano. But that can hardly be imitated by human effort.
