Hi, Chris

I have heard the term "vacuum of space." If this is the case, can we use this pressure to rid our atmosphere of unwanted greenhouse gases or smoke? Like a straw in a balloon. We may need to wait for carbon nano-tubes.

And with that, could we also use these "tubes" as pnuematic space elevators? Such as at the bank drive up teller. 

What do you think?
