How many carbon scrubbers would we need to suck up all the excess CO2 in the atmosphere?

    Different carbon scrubbers have different absorption rates. The current level of CO2 in the atmosphere is around 387 parts per million, a rise over 284 PPM in 1832. To reduce this level, if one carbon scrubber would remove 1 ppm in the atmosphere, there would need to be at least 103 carbon scrubbers. Large ones at that, and it would not be economically feasible for this to happen at this point in time.
