    Plant trees.

    Put certain nutrients into the ocean to create a growth in algae since algae produces more oxygen than plants on dry land. FYI: algae blooms can be toxic and dangerous for ecosystems.

    A British entrepreneur proposed a $25 million dollar award for anyone who could extract one billion tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere for a decade. Two colleagues from Columbia University devised an efficient enough plan to warrant executing.

    This process involves pumping atmospheric air through a chamber containing sodium hydroxide. The sodium hydroxide reacts with the CO2 and forms sodium carbonate – this is the sodium containing solution.

    The solution is then mixed with lime to precipitate powdered calcium carbonate which occurs naturally as limestone. The “limestone” is then heated in a kiln which releases pure CO2 for storage.
