It is not all bad. Cement absorbs CO2 whilst it is setting/curing and so partly mitigates its own polution. It is still a positive sum of CO2, as not all the gas is re-absorbed and huge heating (using fossil fuels) is needed for its manafacture, it is just not quite as large as some would have us belive.

There is a better alternative too:   https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2008/dec/31/cement-carbon-emissions.

Amid the doom and gloom there are a few rays of hope.
Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
