  • Figuring out where to put the carbon

    To meet our immediate energy needs without exacerbating climate change, most experts agree, we’ll need to find a way to store the carbon dioxide given off by the combustion of coal, oil and natural gas. But no full-scale storage systems exist, and the plans to create them have many unknowns. New projects at MIT could help to fill that information gap. At the American Geophysical Union’s fall ...
