    Carbon sequestration, the long-term storage of carbon in plants, soils, geologic formations, and the ocean. In response to concerns about climate change resulting from increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere, interest has been drawn to geoengineering techniques such as carbon capture and storage. How oil undermines democracy, and our ability to address the environmental is a curse, it is often said, that condemns the countries producing it to an existence defined by war, corruption and enormous inequality. Carbon Democracy tells a more complex story, arguing that no nation escapes the political consequences of our collective dependence on oil.

However, Carbon dating is at best a good theory, and that is all it is, a theory. Too many people forget the definition of a theory.
