18-year-old invents cheaper CO2 capture tech to fight climate change

Even with quick-paced developments in renewable energy, the world still produces the vast majority of its power via fossil fuels: over 80 percent. 18-year-old Ethan Novek is working on technology that could allow us to burn fossil fuels without climate change-inducing emissions, giving us time to install more renewable energy. His carbon dioxide (CO2) capture technology stands out from the rest because it could capture CO2 at about $10 per metric ton - around 85 percent less than the industry standard.
