Executive Summary: 

Global Thermostat LLC (GT), has created a disruptive patented technology that makes the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere not just viable, but highly profitable. The technology extracts carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, or from carbon-emitting sources, and uses it as a very profitable resource in existing and emerging markets for CO2. GT pioneers a game-changing model that links economic activity to carbon mitigation rather than carbon creation (as has been the traditional industrializing route). The highly scalable model, cost-effective technology and market strategies provide significant returns on investment for investors.
