One solution for climate change? Vodka.

No, seriously – and contrary to what you might expect, the key ingredient is not potatoes, but carbon dioxide, which has been extracted from the air and turned into liquid.

The final product is not only carbon neutral, but carbon negative, they claim.

Pretty spirited idea.
