Think about it: All of that carbon was above the surface to begin with and when those ancient plants/animals died, the ecosystems lost all of that carbon. Furthermore, the earth has been in a 3 million year cooling cycle, and we could be helping to stabilize the temperature by adding our global warming. Just a thought.

That way interested groups could band together to simply buy-and-bury them.

If you dont then by all means save 30% on your electric bill now and do nothing.

Spend now.. save thousand fold later, just you wont be alive to see the benifits.

What they do emit however are hundreds of tons of sulpher dioxide, infinitely worse for the environment than CO2.

The CO2 levels in our atmosphere have increased 35% in the last 150 years. Volcano eruptions have been the same in that time; what changed is the creation of our industrialized, CO2-emitting civilization.

Not certain the cap-and-trade policy is the best way to stop global warming, but something does need to be done.

No it doesn’t that is a lie.

And aren’t there lots of volcano eruptions every year? Hmm. Maybe making life harder than ever on average people isn’t a sound answer.
