Scientits have made a remarkable breakthrough in carbon dioxide clean-up technology: the carbon dioxide scrubber - converts CO2 to carbon-black particles that float freely in the air.
Can be fitted to any car exhaust, cows asses, chimney pots, smoke stacks, conventionally powered submarines, jet exhausts, politician's mouths; the list is pretty endless.
Green politicians everywhere are enthralled at the prospect of mobile carbon dioxide scrubbers, "It's the breakthrough technology we have waiting for - it will save our planet".
Head of UN IPCC said to be feeling chills running up his leg.
Humbug critics of the new technology say the new CO2 technology has a long way to go; as one humbug critic put it, "For every liter of CO2 scrubbed out of the air the CO2 scrubber needs 200 KJ of energy."
A green spokesperson responded, "Doesn't matter, the units run on batteries."
