Injecting carbon beneath the seabed: dumping, pollution, waste ... or something else?

  • Greg Severinsen

Abstract

In a tiny fraction of Earth’s history, humanity has induced climate change on an unprecedented scale. Despite widespread consensus that a changing climate threatens the very existence of the human species, even now effective measures are not in place to prevent it. Reducing CO2 emissions to safe levels, bringing with it real or perceived reductions in development capacity, is proving extremely difficult to achieve. It is in this context that people are increasingly turning to technology and science for solutions that soften the impact of the carbon-intensive activities seen to be crucial to continued economic growth.
