A way to synthesize methanol

I got the link to the video from Next Big Future.   It reminds me of a post that I did last December on synthesis of methanol.  That post was referencing a Japanese study which suggested using nuclear power to synthesize methanol from carbon dioxide and seawater.  My post had a twist on that by having solar power do the job, but this is a better idea.

Since the LFTR's can produce energy fairly cheaply, synthesizing methanol this way can be even cheaper than Zubrin's idea, which was discussed earlier today.
