Question Dry ice - make your own soda

The fellow at the local DIY beer and wine store said that dry ice will carbonate drinks.
This is good news for me, because every now and then I would like a soda to drink, but avoid them due to what they are packaged in - either plastic or aluminum.
Sure you can recycle the bottle or can, but you are still creating waste from the production of the container, and the process of recycling it over again.

Dry ice supposedly carbonates drinks, and what's even better is that by making your own soda, you can actually make something that is healthier by using real fruit juice and less sugars.

I have never done this though, and I am just repeating what the fellow told me.

So ... has anyone here had sucess with dry ice as a carbonation method ?

One last question for you all : Dry ice is created using CO2 .
In automobiles, CO2 is a pollutant. How are these two CO2 similar / different ?
