The development of carbon dioxide sequestration and conversion technologies can help set up additional loops in the naturally occurring carbon cycle. It presents the unique opportunity to transition from a fossil fuel based industry to a CO2 based industry. Life cycle analysis of CO2 conversion processes which take into account the entire chemical conversion process have shown the advantages of using CO2 as a source of chemicals. Coupling these technologies with renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind, will reduce the global warming impact (GWI), by reducing the total carbon content in the atmosphere and thus mitigating the climate disasters. These technologies can help ensure peoples lives are secured and that vulnerable cultures which aremore dependent on nature are not washed away. It would help protect the lives of creatures who have no means of protection against the anthropological climate change....
