What to concentrate in future
With advancement in technology and more inventions it is possible to develop new techniques and methods to arrest the degradation of earth.
All it takes is to think, look and concentrate. Of course dedication and funds are needed. This can only be done by Governments, and by setting priorities.
The typical example is that of the Government of Japan. Setting time frame they have developed and tested method to capture CO2 from atmosphere and store it deep in the soil. As this has been achieved now, it is to the Governments all over the globe to ask for the technique and install it in their power plants, mainly the thermal power plants.
I hope this is not asking for too much from our Governments !
