Site of the Day for Wednesday, June 18, 2008 Storing Carbon Dioxide Today's site, from those always inquiring minds at the Why Files, ponders an encouraging proposal to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. Gentle Subscribers will discover some of the promising data which offers a hopeful prospect for lowered carbon dioxide levels. "Global warming: Can we just stash the carbon dioxide? ... Could deep underground storage of carbon dioxide from power plants slow global warming?Global warming is the nightmare that just won't quit. Fearing the biggest environmental catastrophe since the ice age, many scientists say the goal of the Kyoto agreement -- slowing the increase in greenhouse gas emissions -- will not do the job. Rather, we need to drastically cut dumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere." - from the website The presentation reviews the global output of carbon dioxide and some of the small scale projects to store this greenhouse gas which are currently in progress. Additional information summarizes some of the plans from a small number of countries around the world attempting to implement carbon dioxide storage, as well as looking at the risks inherent in the overall concept. A final section explores what happens to carbon dioxide that is stored deep in the earth. As always with a Why Files exhibit, there are clarifying diagrams, useful statistics, the latest scientific research on the topic and the conclusion that there are no easy answers.
