The very idea of burying carbon-di-oxide is idiocy. Trees devour CO2 and give countless other benefits.

Plant trees, plant trees, plant trees.

Due to their needs, the classic huge trees are disappearing. Imagine the wonder if each city and each village could have at least one spell-binding, towering tree: A Dawn Redwood, a Carolina Poplar, a Sequoia, a giant wide-winged Oak.

In Clatsop County Oregon, there is a stump of a Douglas Fir that is 14 feet in diameter--yes, fourteen feet.

A stump.
