      I have read about some very interesting advancements in the field of alternative fuels regarding the subject.  Turns out they've figured, on a lab scale, a process to convert high temperature CO2 and steam (H2O) into O2 and CH4 (methane). It involves 2-400*C temps and a very expensive (iirc, platinum) catalyst. But it is fairly efficient, and can be run off of process/solar thermal heat, so it may become plausible down the road.

      But again, not really all that feasible for a home guy without a tens-of-thousands research budget. You have a much better shot piping fermentation CO2 into a greenhouse and boosting growth that way :).

      Please post your general geographic location, so what we know which way to look for the mushroom cloud.

      That video is somewhat similar to my basic thought, but that isn't converting fermented CO2 into hydrocarbon.  If water can be de-stabilized enough it might be possible to separate alcohol without a still.  It's just an idea I want to test.  Yes, I knew that hydrogen and oxygen are explosive.
