In theory, you could collect carbon dioxide from the air or water and manufacture synthetic hydrocarbons from it, completely eliminating the need for actual fossil fuels. I believe one of the major reasons no one is doing this is lack of large quantities of cheap energy.

This scheme is carbon-neutral for fuels. It is carbon-negative for chemicals, since they tend to end up sequestered in non-biodegradable form in landfills and whatnot. At least stuff like detergent stays in the biosphere... Plasma torch recycling could ameliorate this effect.

The south pole gets ALMOST cold enough to freeze CO out of the atmosphere. If we really need carbon, we could put a Polywell down there to do a bit of compress/cool/decompress/freeze for dry ice!

That would speed up global cooling. Maybe lead to CO2 snow.
