These are definitely not advances, the projects are all complete pipe dreams and this reflects in the proposed methods. Using gmo algae or cell free enzymes on a wide scale like this is incredibly reckless. You run the risk of introducing a disruptive organism to the environment, worse, to an environment in which genes are frequently exchanged between organisms. If the self perpetuating carbon sequestration can't be contained, you run the risk of another ice age.
This kind of wide scale bioengineering is only appealing on its surface. Renewable energy is a non-intrusive solution that we already know works and have countless working examples of.
The prospect of fusion is also so uncertain that just gambling on it working within the next 20 years when you hardly have a working model seems equally reckless.
Sometimes I feel like the entirety of pchan has just played too much factorio.
Subsidies on electric vehicles are not the problem
