Scientists Create 'Dry Water' That Can Be Used to Soak Up Carbon Dioxide

It sounds like a contradiction in terms, but scientists have created 'dry water'.Each particle of dry water contains a water droplet surrounded by a sandy silica coating. In fact, 95 per cent of dry water is 'wet' water.

Great discovery yet by the scientists !! Soon it'll help in maintaining the climatic condition and the environment from the worst..

> scientists have created 'dry water'
old news, no new data
propaganda, trying to impress with some (poorly connected) data snippets but carefully avoiding essential data
conclusion: we can blow out all the CO2 we want and produce more toxins -- "Dry Water" could maybe be used to remove it, all? or some of it -- and this would certainly be the first technological 'fix' without any sideeffets, too.

There's this other amazing, incredible technology that captures carbon dioxide, it's these green things called "plants". And they don't need to be manufactured! All they need to grow is soil, water, and light! And they can even use sunlight!!

Research needs to be fully explored I feel before we start introducing any new chemicals or products into our environment.

The scientist need to create a powder that will soak themselves up for disposal as they would have to be the biggest drips on this planet to come up with this need to eliminate carbon dioxide from our planet, hell what will our poor plants and trees live on if we do that.

ARGHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So now we invent dry water able to soak up Carbon Dioxide. That means that wa can happily and freely continue pulluting our air ? Mmmmmm ......... too strange .......
