Unfortunately, the solution to the carbon problem is not solved by thinking of ways to do a job that used to require carbon and do it in a way that doesn't require carbon. This is because how much we do tomorrow is not decided by how much we do now. If we become more efficient or wealthier we just do more. So any process that replaces carbon and makes you wealthier or more efficient has no carbon effect.
