>How does it reverse climate change?

>When a forest grows, the trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and use it to make their wood.

>If you burn that wood, the process doesn’t emit any extra CO2 into the atmosphere - because the trees removed it from the air in the first place. It’s called carbon neutral.

>If you go one step further by capturing the CO2 from wood burning, you’re actually reducing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere overall.

>In an ideal world you’d go one step further by creating useful products from the waste CO2.
