The issue in this norwegian article, is about
The US Government versus The Kyotoprotocoll of 2001.

Since The US didn't ratify the agreement along with the majority of the world, they had to come up with something else to prevent pollution.
Well, they figured out, since the oil has been sucked out of the ground, they can instead fill it with carbongases.

Sure thing.

In the dry oilfield in Dayton, Texas, scientists at the UoT has injected 1600 tons of CO2. The gas is binding to groundwater at 1500m deep.
Research so far shows that the southern parts of the US alone can store 300mrd tons of CO2.

Im no biologist. I wonder if this would work, that is, that the ground would actually make these gases being sucked up into the ground, and over time becoming something useful for the ground. As far as I know, we need chlorosynthesis-something to make good breathable air of it.
-Would this not just choke the ground?
