ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on carbon sequestration. It is stated that this waste carbon dioxide (CO2) contributes to two big problems in the environment and to the society. One of these is global warming, producing more and bigger storms, more floods, and worse droughts, thus disrupting food production and water supplies.
