AFAIK, making fertilizer out of captured CO2 to use in greenhouse does not reduce CO2 in air because it goes back into air. However, CO2 capture from air is very energy intensive no doubt generates additional CO2 emission. So how is this a good thing?

Carbon dioxide is not a fertilizer, dude.

I believe it's just a scam to get government subsidies. They would be producing any marketable product, so could never function independently. There wouldn't really be anyway to measure whether or not they are doing anything, except receiving money from the government, to basically do nothing (ideal business). Really odd that anyone would think a mechanical solution would be any way better, than a natural one, just plant more trees and crops. Defoliation is likely been more the problem than burning petroleum. We've been clearing a lot of land, but do little to replace the vegetation we remove permanently. Storm water is generally devoted to eventual run out to sea, through the natural river systems. It's not really excess rain water, it just takes time and bare ground to seep in to the soil. Seems like a better use of all that fresh rain water, would be to pipe it into areas, with too little, to support much plant growth. Of course, once these less than attractive areas green up, they become more attractive, and will get paved over, houses and businesses built, and back to the same problems...

I really can't understand the drive to keep everything the same, live in the past. Every new day, is a new adventure, we never know what is going to happen, or what sort of world we will wake up to tomorrow. That's part of living, figuring out how to survive the changes, form one day to the next.
