Carbon's Underground CO2
Storage Vault Locations
U.S. and Global Deep Underground BECCS Negative CO2 Storage Zones.
Locating Clean Power Plants Directly Over CO2 DISPOSAL WELLS Speeds Up Decarbonization and Drives Down Cost.
Electricity Transmission Lines, Not Long-to-Build, Costly, and Dangerous CO2 Pipelines Is The Way To Quickly Decarbonize and Repair the Air.
States' Carbon Capture and Storage Situation:
"The United States has the technological potential to offset roughly only a decade’s worth of its current CO2 emissions through biological sequestration (i.e., planting trees, etc.,) but a few hundred years’ worth of emissions through carbon dioxide capture and sequestration." - from Congressional Budget Office "The Potential for Carbon Sequestration in the United States, 2007" - Summary, page 2.
is about 4 centuries of fossil fuel at the current burn rate on Planet Earth. It
is estimated there is underground storage space for several times Planet
Earth's carbon dioxide.
Far more than is needed to bury all of Climate Change's CO

Locations without carbon disposal will have to rely on renewables - wind, solar - for their electricity.
Bottom Line: BECCS Power Plants for rolling back Climate Change can be located over CO2 storage zones almost anywherein the world and connected to electrical grids.
