Scientists can make carbon capture work. A company called Carbon Engineering can capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and turn it into fuel. This will help to fight global warming. Scientists say they have cut the cost of carbon capture. It was $1,000 per ton of captured CO2. It is now as low as $94 per ton.

The technology works by taking CO2 from the air and freezing it in a liquid. This is heated and mixed with hydrogen to make gasoline. Carbon Engineering said: "We can confidently say that...air capture...is a [realistic] and buildable technology." It can make carbon-neutral fuels. It can also remove carbon from the air.
