The British head of Shell, Ron Oxburgh, said in an interview with the UK's Guardian newspaper that carbon dioxide emissions desperately need to be captured and stored underground in a process called sequestration. "No one can be comfortable at the prospect of continuing to pump out the amounts of carbon dioxide that we are pumping out at present," he said, a statement that comes on the heels of the UK's head science adviser's statement that climate change poses a bigger threat to the world than terrorism. Sequestration entails trapping the carbon emissions within solids and burying them under a fairly remote location such as the North Sea. Shell and BP have previously cited global warming as an urgent issue and promised to reduce emissions, while the world's largest oil company, ExxonMobil, being either a bunch of liars or dumbasses, or both, refuses to acknowledge any definite link between fossil fuels and global warming.
