Researchers in Japan have made great advances in demonstrating the viability of burying carbon dioxide emissions underground. Since CO2 has been fingered as the main culprit in the trend towards global warming, this research is invaluable on the world scene.

Computer simulations have been used in this research to predict how these gases will behave after being stored underground, allowing researchers to determine long-term effects before proceeding with this endeavour on a large scale.

Implications - The long-term benefits or effects of the subterranean storage of CO2 is still a bit uncertain, but at the very least, emissions will be drastically reduced in the short-term with this system in place.
