December 22, 2019, "Complete recycling of CO2 to stop global warming" Sunday version: Dear Sir,
(COP25) ended with some countries struggling to take more aggressive measures to combat global warming, and the countries did not keep pace. To realize the “Paris Agreement”, it is politically difficult to take measures against global warming by reducing fossil fuels. Measures should be changed to technology development to recycle CO2.
Part 1. The COP25 agreement document recognized that there is a “big difference” between the greenhouse gas reduction targets currently set by each country and the target to control the rise in temperature adopted in the international framework for global warming countermeasures “Paris Agreement”. The document, however, only mentioned that it was “urgent to close the gap”.
The “Paris Agreement” is important.
I think it is politically difficult to combat global warming by reducing fossil fuels.
Therefore, the policy should be changed to “Technology development for CO2 recycling”.
Today I will introduce the following:
A technology that converts CO2 into useful chemical raw materials, achieving a conversion speed 450 times faster than conventional products.
Toshiba announced that it has achieved about 450 times the conversion rate of its catalytic technology that converts carbon dioxide (CO2) into carbon monoxide, a raw material for chemicals and fuels such as plastics and pharmaceuticals.
The company aims to put it to practical use in the latter half of the 2020s as a technology that reduces CO2 emissions during standby.
This technology makes it possible to reduce CO2 emissions with high efficiency and contribute to solving social issues to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. The technology also aims to achieve practical use in the latter half of the 2020s by realizing the system saving space and low cost required for conversion.
In recent years, rising levels of CO2 in the atmosphere are presumed to contribute to global warming. In recent years, awareness of decarbonization, such as SDGs and ESG investments, has spread not only to the industrial world but also to the business community. Under the Paris Agreement, Japan aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050, but it has become a major issue because CO2 emissions in industrial sectors such as factories have not been reduced. Under such circumstances, the development of technology for effectively using CO2 by converting it into a valuable material by a chemical reaction (electrochemical reaction) involving electricity is underway.
Each country should give priority to technological development of "complete recycling of CO2 to stop global warming" over space development.

Continue to next week.
Part 2. I advocate “complete recycling of fossil fuels” as a measure against global warming from “abolition of fossil fuels”. Complete recycling of “CO2 etc.”.
I think it is technically possible.
The realization is to make the cost lower than other energy.
Each country should allocate the budget for space development to the development of “complete recycling of CO2.”
Part 3. Please support victims of human rights violations by the Japanese government.
The prosperity of the free world is “realized” by freedom, democracy, and “domination under the law”.
I seriously seek “rule of law”.
There are many victims in the world due to "illegal punishment" of "immigration law violation".
For details, see the “Send on weekdays” email.
Please instruct the person concerned to investigate.
There are many American victims.
