So this is certainly an interesting technology and in the future it could be important.  But for the time being if the goal is reducing net emissions then the best cost/benefit ratio would come from cleaning up existing sources.
Or not spending it at all because the problem will be addressed through normal human responses to change. All of the heated rhetoric over climate change mirrors the rhetoric over 'overpopulation/resource exhaustion' in the past. It disappeared as an issue because no one predicted how human populations would react to increases in wealth. I suspect something similar will happen with adaptation as populations adjust.
