I don't have any research papers in front of me, but I highly doubt it.
Since we pump out more CO2 than any other country; if we were alos
capturing it; then there wouldn't be a world problem with CO2.

I think you should also post your message in several of the
environmentalist groups where the folks there might be more up to date
on this issue. If you find anything good in those groups; get back to us
with it.
