A New Way to Make Useful Chemicals from CO2

• Technology Review
When it's exposed to the elements, the surface of copper turns green because it reacts with oxygen. But now scientists have discovered a copper-based material with a surprising property: it reacts with carbon dioxide in air rather than oxygen. Though the reaction is not a practical way to remove large quantities of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, it does provide an alternative new route, using a cheap, nonpetroleum feedstock, to make useful chemicals.

These are going to catch on, and then before you know it we'll have a CO2 deficiency that we'll have to be taxed on.
