I seem to remember a news post recently saying the carbon could be
separated from the oxygen in the CO2 molecule and used as fuel,
fertilizer or chemical uses. Don't have the URL handy but I think
converting it to other uses is better than burying it underground...
"It is possible to turn carbon dioxide back into carbon and oxygen, but
this always costs energy. You get energy by burning carbon and
making carbon dioxide, but to reverse this you need to add in energy.
Suppose that it were somehow possible (which it isn't) to burn carbon
dioxide and somehow get back carbon and oxygen. If this got you
energy, or even if it could be done with no cost, it would mean that you
could start off with some carbon, burn it, get energy, then get
the carbon back again, and start all over. This would mean getting
endless energy for nothing -- which is obviously impossible.
The best way to turn carbon dioxide back into carbon-containing fuels
and oxygen is to let plants handle the job. They combine carbon
dioxide and water to make carbon-based fuels (like wood) using the
energy from the sun."
So it looks like stopping deforestation, reforesting and blooming
deserts for more plants to take care of the additional CO2 would be a
better answer than technology or burying.
Or just give it all up and take no steps to try to fix anything since
Jesus is going to save all the believers when the Rapture comes...<lol>...
Happy New Year!
