The next 'moon landing?' Norway plans deep-sea CO2 storage.

Oslo – Can the North Sea basin hold all of the carbon dioxide in Europe? Norway certainly hopes so.

At a high-level conference in Bergen last month, the oil-rich Nordic nation announced that it will work with Britain to study how the base of the North Sea could be used for carbon dioxide storage for European countries. It will also allocate nearly $200 million toward carbon capture and storage projects in the European Union.

Although some environmentalists aren't yet convinced of the long-term prospects of seques

The joint British-Norwegian study will build a profile for the whole North Sea, assessing each countries' storage potential and projections of likely volumes and locations of carbon dioxide (CO2) flows. The conference in Bergen, where the plan was announced, took place in advance of December's United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.


Wow ... doesn't sound wise, does it?

I read this article earlier today and was wondering what long effects this might have on marine life down there? Also, what is it is somehow released into the atmosphere all at once!

think about the ships that traverse the waters. If the gas excapes it could severly affect bouyancy and sink the ships. and plants could be using the CO2 to produce oxygen which I hear is very good for you; but thats another story.

Well heres another way to destroy marine life.

I hope the co2 would be well sealed or that amount could cause serious ocean acidification.


Ocean acidification is the name given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of the Earth's oceans, caused by their uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

What does ocean acidification do?
It kills much of the life in the oceans.

Fantastic idea Britain and Norway!!Way to go.
Really good idea!

Why don't we just nuke the atmoshere until it burns off?
NO co2 problems then.
