Dumping carbon at sea

TreeHugger is running a story on the debate Is ocean storage a viable option or merely a "dangerous distraction"?

Personally, I will oppose any solution which leaves a problem for the next generation. I also support diversity - multiple solutions to a problem.

In terms of global warming, we need to act fast to remove CO2 from the atmosphere before it is too late. This urgency obviously gives support to experiments for possible/potential solutions. By experiment, we mean small scale tests which if run into problem will not produce devastating consequences. Deep water injection of CO2 belongs to the same category of carbon Sequestration at deep geological holes. Once we go down that path, any mishap will have globally devastating effect. It is too high a risk to take.
