S ocietal concern over global warming and its link to increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO 2) concentrations has motivated many local communities, states, and countries to develop plans to reduce net fluxes of CO 2 to the atmosphere. These plans involve two general strategies: (1) direct reduction of fossil-fuel-based CO 2 emissions through enhanced energy conservation and efficiency and development of alternative energy sources; and (2) seques-tration of atmospheric carbon (C) in standing… CONTINUE READING
