16 Storing Carbon in Earth
The rapid growth in energy demand in the United States and abroad makes fossil fuels essential for continued economic growth and human well being. But using these fuels produces the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. Geologists have much to contribute to one possible solution.
S. Julio Friedmann

22 Demonstrating Carbon Sequestration
A saline aquifer in the North Sea could hold as much carbon dioxide as all of Europe's fossil fuel plants would produce over 800 years. It is one of two large projects in action for storing carbon dioxide in geologic formations. At the same time, companies and governments in several countries are teaming up to understand a range of storage methods, from burial in coal seams to making carbonate rock.
