ABC News: Turning Carbon Dioxide Into Fuel
Converting CO2 Into Fuel
Discovery News and ABC News reported in December 2007 that researchers in New Mexico are working to turn CO2 into a fuel source. I'm not what most people would consider an environmentalist nor am I a proponent of the global warming theories, but I believe technology such as this has a lot of potential. Hopefully they'll be able to make such a device a viable solar energy option.

From the Discovery News article: "This would allow you to use CO2 one more time. You wouldn't throw it out into the atmosphere; you'd turn it into gasoline," said Rich Diver, principal member of the technical staff and lead engineer on the project.

From the ABC News article: The real potential, however, is to capture carbon-dioxide emissions and reuse them as fuel. "We're also looking at ways to pull carbon dioxide out of the air," he says. This would allow the reactor to be mounted anywhere, sucking up the atmospheric greenhouse gas and turning it into fuel.
BBC News: 'Kryptonite' discovered in mine
Kryptonite Discovered!
BBC News is reporting that a mineral matching the chemical formula for Kryptonite in the movie Superman Returns has been found in Serbia. So, I suppose we can wipe Serbia off of the possible vacation spots for Superman this summer.

From the article, "Towards the end of my research I searched the web using the mineral's chemical formula - sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide - and was amazed to discover that same scientific name, written on a case of rock containing kryptonite stolen by Lex Luther from a museum in the film Superman Returns."
