Cradle to Cradle One Step Closer

The New York Times in all it's greeniness has a great article on a Cornell professor who has identified catalysts to help create plastics from CO2 the number one greenhouse gas. Imagine outfitting smokestacks with these plastic converters. Forget catalytic converters of the past on your car (which also have catalysts (hence the name)) imagine one which creates a convertible byproduct for manufacturing recyclable plastics. You go to the gas station and fill up on gas, and drop off your super dino juice.

It's tough to change people's behavior, solutions like this make the changes smaller.

Cool Stuff!
