COyou2 - Saving the planet one breath at a time

This site looks interesting, it's talking about personal carbon capture and storage as a strategy to prevent climate change:

"Did you know that human beings themselves are major emitters of carbon dioxide? We all know about reducing our electricity consumption and taking fewer flights, but isn’t all this a little pointless when one basic, everyday activity cancels it all out?

Each day every human being breathes out an average of 1 kg of CO2. That’s 0.38 tonnes a year. Now multiply that by 6.7 billion! That’s a lot of CO2.

COyou2 person carbon capture systems allow you to store that CO2 and do your bit to stop climate change. The COyou2 patented technology works by filtering the air you breathe out, capturing the carbon in a convenient lightweight backpack.

That’s why we all need to use personal carbon capture systems. At the end of the day, there are 21 million of us and only one government – so what are you waiting for?"

I've just ordered a catalogue, it's definitely worth checking out, after all, every little thing makes a difference. I never thought about human beings as being responsible for major carbon emissions, but I'm always looking for ways to lessen my carbon footprint.

What do you guys think?


I've just ordered 200 of them so I'll always have spares if one breaks down. I'm planning to store the extras under the house, just in case.
Wise, very wise move. Make sure to order extras for your friends, family and pets, you can never be too prepared. With any luck, we can relieve big coal and oil companies from changing their ways, by changing ours.


Big Coal Companies the problem?

Whatever we do, remember, we are going to have to get the Chinese, Russians, and Indians to go along with it. Vladamir Putin will do judo on your head before he will do anything he thinks is not in the Russian national interest, and he quite clearly believes that anything that costs anything is not. If you don't like coal, sell the coal and coal plants to the chinese, they are building lots of new plants at the rate of about 1 a day, a few used ones will not make any difference.


what is the carbon impact of these devices

counting the shipping maintenance, and operation of these devices, they use a lot more carbon than they remove. There are much more efficient ways of removing carbon from the air, and even they are a waste of effort. Plug the hole in the bottom of the bucket before putting water in it.

Re: what is the carbon impact of these devices

Oh man:
