In the last episode, we Simblified climate change (spoiler alert if you haven’t heard it: It’s real. Climate change, not our episode. Though… That’s also real but shockingly less terrible for the world). This week, we look at various techniques that have been discussed for removing carbon from the atmosphere. We’ve all thought putting a giant vacuum cleaner in public places should do the trick, right? There are several other ways too… And while there’s been massive progress, none of them have really become THE solution. The Simblified trio look at ways to remove gases from the atmosphere, all while pumping several doses of gas back into it. (Heh).
