$25 Million prize for a system for REMOVING GREENHOUSE GASES FROM THE ATMOSPHERE in order to stop Global warming.

OK, so lets think up a system to win this $25 million...

1.) It should be solar powered so that it will not contribute to the problem it is trying to fix.

2.) It should be cheap and easy to manufacture. It would be best if it was actually able to manufacture copies of itself using whatever resources were freely available, as this would be the ultimate economic optimization. Even better it should build new copies of itself using the carbon it is sucking out of the air.

3.) It must not be environmentally harmful. In fact, it would be best if it was environmentally beneficial in some way.

4.) It should be visually pleasing due to the fact we will probably need a lot of them. It would be a very good thing if it fit into the natural landscape without looking out of place.

5.) As a bonus, wouldn't it be great if we could somehow design it in such a way as to do extra things that would be useful, such as create food.

Of course, such an invention is basically a total pipe dream. We don't have the technology to produce anything like this.

Enter and good luck to anyone who might win! Sir Richard Branson's $25 Million prize is waiting to be collected.

Biggest Bucket Wins !!!
==
During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

"Well," said the Director, "there's one simple but quite effective test: We fill up a bathtub, leave the water running, both hot and cold, and then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to keep the bathtub from overflowing and empty it."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No." said the Director, "A sane person would first turn off the faucets and then pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"

Except for, or course, we've basically just written up the technical specification for TREES

Solution to global warming - plant lots of trees, stop cutting them down.

As I have described a very workable solution to the problem, please forward the check for $25,000,000 as soon as possible.
Thank you.
