Panel: Earthquake risk exists from deep wells

There are 6 comments on the USA Today story from Jun 15, 2012, titled Panel: Earthquake risk exists from deep wells. In it, USA Today reports that:

As well, the National Research Council panel report, " Induced Seismicity Potential in Energy Technologies ," cautioned that plans to inject carbon dioxide from power plants deep underground at high pressure, so-called "carbon capture and sequestration" , may raise similar risks and called for further study.

Carbon capture and storage (CCS), (carbon capture and sequestration), refers to technology attempting to prevent the release of large quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere from fossil fuel use in power generation and other industries by capturing CO2, transporting it and ultimately, pumping it into underground geologic formations to securely store it away from the atmosphere.[1] It is a potential means of mitigating the contribution of fossil fuel emissions to global warming.[2] The process is based on capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from large point sources, such as fossil fuel power plants, and storing it where it will not enter the atmosphere.[3] It can also be used to describe the scrubbing of CO2 from ambient air as a geoengineering technique. Although CO2 has been injected into geological formations for various purposes, the long term storage of CO2 is a relatively new concept. The first commercial example was Weyburn in 2000.[4]
