ABSTRACT
The article discusses the process of carbon sequestration beneath the Columbia River Basin. Focusing on the issues of global warming, more and more people are hoping for a way to avert global catastrophe by reducing or stabilizing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. It is in this connection that the government is encouraging efforts to develop technologies that can capture and contain carbon dioxide emissions before they reach the atmosphere. Carbon sequestration is then developed as it involves stripping of carbon dioxide from power plant exhaust and injecting it into natural underground reservoirs and rock formation.
