ABSTRACT
The article highlights carbon sequestration as a method of reducing carbon dioxide emissions and fighting global warming. The idea behind sequestration is to continue producing energy, but to contain the carbon emissions in a manner that doesn't harm the atmosphere and cause global warming. Several projects in Sweden, eastern Germany and Spain are working to test the sequestration concept.
