In order to cut carbon emissions CNN says we have to cut down trees and bury them.
“ Plant trees, sure. But to save the climate, we should also cut them down”
“ Beyond these practical uses, wood can also serve purely as a long-term carbon storage device. The key to locking away the carbon is to cut off the oxygen supply to microbes, thereby preventing decomposition.”
“ Based on such examples, scholars have proposed chopping down trees or collecting fallen logs and intentionally stowing them away. That could mean sinking them to the bottom of lakes, interring them in abandoned mines or burying them in specially dug trenches.”
