Plenty of space underground for carbon storage

USA Today, 12/27/07, “Tech could reduce coal facilities' emissions,” p. Lexis

After coal is gasified and the CO{-2} is captured, it still must go somewhere. The Department of Energy has estimated that North
America has room underground to store 3.5 trillion tons of CO{-2}. In theory, the USA could store all its power plant emissions for
centuries.

In fact, oil and gas companies have been injecting CO{-2} into depleted oil fields without incident for decades. The
CO{-2} dislodges trapped oil and gas, increasing the fields' yield and profitability.
