I'm not sure of the feasibility of this, but I saw a news story on TV regarding global warming and it showed a large smoke stack on a factory. My thinking is, since they are releasing all that Carbon Dioxide and plants need carbon dioxide, how about instead of just releasing it straight up into the atmosphere, redirect that smoke stack to a small "forest" planted on the same land as the factory. That way the trees could get some of the carbon dioxide before it has a chance to get into the atmosphere. As the trees grow, they would be able to absorb more and more carbon dioxide. I don't mean to suggest it would solve the problem of pollution, but every little bit counts. Would be interested to see if this has been tried or if there is a reason it wouldn't work.
