Global warming is one of the most difficult problems of this century. We argue that it is unreal to prevent future climate change by collecting enormous antropogenic emission of carbon dioxide. More reasonable may be the collecting and processing much lover and more valuable emissions of other greenhouse gases, first of all methane. But industry needs new low-scale technologies to accomplish this task. Direct oxidation of hydrocarbons to liquid oxygenates may be the real solution.
