We store dangerous nuclear waste in secret places deep underneath the desert. Can we store dangerous greenhouse gases on the ocean floor?
BBC news reports that scientists are desperately searching for ways to cut greenhouse gas emissions. One of their ideas is to pump the offending CO2 deep under the ocean, kind of the opposite of drilling for oil and natural gas. In fact, the CO2 could be stored in empty oil and gas fields, as well as in empty coal mines on land.
Before this could be done, the carbon dioxide gas would need to be changed into solid or liquid form by freezing it. The water temperature deep down on the ocean floor is cold enough to keep it from thawing and escaping back into the atmosphere?unless the ocean warms up too much due to global warming. However, although climate change warms up the surface of the ocean, leading to more hurricanes, it's not likely to warm up the ocean depths.
