Can you please either post quotes from your links or explain in your own words what this is about exactly and how it fits into the 'policy and solutions' category?

It’s interesting science! But there’s a category for that.

The impetus for converting CO2 into CO is rather lacking on Earth; we tend to go the other way, preferring a greenhouse gas over an acutely toxic gas. It’s great on Mars, where CO and O makes decent rocket fuel, or you vent the CO into an already-toxic atmosphere and keep the O to breathe.
