ABSTRACT
The article reports on burying carbon dioxide (CO2) underground. According to climate scientists, global emissions must start falling by 2020 to prevent further atmospheric CO2 increases which would cause climate change and disasters. Scientists suggest capturing the gas at industrial emission point sources, compress it and inject it deep into Earth, where it will be sequestered and isolated forever. Preliminary studies estimate that global geologic reservoirs could hold some 9.5 trillion metric tons of CO2.
