1. Currently, we already make a lot from carbon fiber.

Mostly in the form of carbon fiber polymers.

As far as taking carbon out of the environment, that would require being able to not just capture carbon dioxide, but also convert it back to pure carbon, and then into a useful form. Possible, but complicated.
