The idea to sequester carbon is gaining support as a way to avoid global warming. For example, the European Union plans to invest billions of Euros within the next ten years to develop carbon capture and storage whereby CO2 will be extracted at power plants and other combustion sites and stored underground. But how effective is this procedure and what are the long-term consequences of leakage for the oceans and climate? A Niels Bohr Institute researcher has now cast light upon these issues....

Scientists have developed a way to detect and track carbon dioxide deep underground, giving the government an important tool that may help people find a way to keep carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from polluting the atmosphere. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory used colorless, nontoxic liquids called perflourocarbon tracers to basically fingerprint carbon dioxide that was injected into a coal seam in northwestern New Mexico. They...
