Crazy idea: carbon capture systems need to move a lot of air around. Air conditioning and heating systems already move a lot of air around. Put carbon capture in the HVAC loop!

@KelsonV but uh, wouldn't the problem be the labor involved in doing something with that carbon, not to mention the capture itself? Like assuming you can capture it at no cost, you're gonna have a big something full of carbon and carbon-like shit that needs collection and disposal, or processing and recycling. If the capture is efficient, them you'll have a lot of work going into just collecting it from locations.

@Mainebot It gets crazier: they're talking about converting the captured carbon into synthetic fuel on a per-building or neighborhood scale.
