The article describes the research being conducted by scientist Kurt Zenz House who has devised a way to dispose of carbon dioxide emissions by putting them at least three thousand meters under the ocean. At this depth, House feels that the water pressure and temperature will turn the CO2 into a liquid denser than the water, keeping it from rising to the surface. House is negotiating with a petroleum firm to build a power plant that will test his system.
