“What we’ve done is build a [direct-air capture] process that is—as much as possible—built on existing processes and technologies that are widespread in the world,” said David Keith, a professor of applied physics at Harvard and the lead author of the new study. “That’s why we think we have a reasonable possibility of scaling up.”

It’s time to dismiss the denialists as fringe whack jobs. They think there is a global conspiracy among all the scientists to fabricate rising temperatures, as if that was possible. Their paranoid theory collapses under its own weight.
