Storing carbon dioxide in underground caves that once held oil and gas is shaping up to be one of the more promising techniques for reducing the amount of greenhouse gases that get pumped into the atmosphere, he said during a presentation at the International Technology Petroleum Conference taking place here this week.
Yes, you read that correctly. The oil companies have a plan to solve global warming. They are going to put the CO2 emissions back underground. Imagine my amazement at this plan!
First, I am amazed that they are virtually admitting that there is global warming. I thought for sure that Whiskey George told us the science says otherwise.
Second, this sounds like we're messing with something that's going to come back and bite us. But then again, we're "eco-wackos" according to the Greed and Oil Party. So you say, "Calee4, yer overreacting here. Get a grip man, the oil companies are looking out for us."
Uh oh, that sounds kinda ominous there. So they're already doing this? Man, I hope nothing can go wrong. It's just C02, right? The stuff that's in your Perrier water, right?
A large earthquake could also create a fault that would let carbon dioxide escape over a broader area. "In that case, you'd probably have to take the CO2 out," he said.
Well, I'm glad I don't have to worry about earthquakes... oh wait, I forgot, I live in California. Never mind.
Imagine that, Perrier coming out of your tap. What will they think of next?
Administrative bodies also need to be created. Companies don't last 1,000 years, he said.
So the public gets a say in this? How democratic of them.
