Michael Szulczewski, Juanes Research Group, M.I.T. M.I.T. researchers estimated the total potential storage capacity of deep saline aquifers in the United States by analyzing how liquefied carbon dioxide would spread from deep injection wells. In a perfect world, greenhouse gas emissions would be on the decline in the near future, with fossil fuels replaced by clean sources of energy like wind and solar. But current emissions are so daunting that the chances of the planet cleaning up its act in a timely manner are slim. “It’s such a big number that it’s sort of hard to grasp what it means,” said Ruben Juanes , a geoscientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “With emissions as enormous as they are right now, even if we try to deploy alternate energy technologies as quickly as possible, there’s still going to be a huge source of emissions from fossil fuels that ...
