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

    •Nitrogen Oxide (NO)
    •Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
    •Ozone (O3)
    •Volatile organic compounds (RH)." Where is the Carbon?

      Aug 14 2013: Guess Chemwiki couldn't identify carbon from the smog... Thats the first I heard of Chemwiki and its already lost its credibility with me. Thanks Ed, now i know never go there for reliable info.

          Aug 15 2013: No but isn't there carbon in all smog making it black? I was sincerely thanking you for showing me ChemWiki isn't 100% right.

        Aug 15 2013: RE: "No but isn't there carbon. . . ?" Can you please cite the information which convinces you that smog contains Carbon? Here is some correlating data from a second source:
        "Pollutant Sources, Both Natural and Human-Made--
        Volatile organic compounds (VOC) Tailpipe emissions, evaporation of gasoline at service stations, surface coatings such as oil paints, solvents such as barbecue starters, fuel combustion, vegetation
        Nitrogen oxides such as nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) Tailpipe emissions, manufacturing industries, electricity generating stations, fossil fuel powered plants, oil refineries, pulp and paper plants, incinerators
        Sulphur dioxide (SO2) Non-ferrous metal smelting, thermal electricity generating stations, oil refineries, pulp and paper plants, incinerators
        Particulate matter Tailpipe emissions, volcanoes, wind erosion, forest fires, fossil fuel powered plants." --http://publications.gc.ca/Collection-R/LoPBdP/modules/prb98-4-smog/maincomponents-e.htm
