If the CO2 couldn't circulate back down to the ground, then the scientists and biologist should start taking plants in the atmosphere to absorb them. That should be a win-win for Earth and possible fresh food source for the people in the outer space.

Re: Teslas don't LIKE firetrucks

This will be another reason for my uncle to not like the EV's. I was helping him installing the new skid plate and smittybilt bumper on his Wrangler diesel when he mentioned how boring these new electronic vehicles to him. Well, he used to work on a fire station before.
