 What is carbon sequestration. How can it be done by an artificial sequestration sink ?

Carbon sequestration is the process of capture or stable the excess amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to inverse the climate change or to reduce global warming.

Three ways to capture the excess carbon dioxide from atmosphere.

1.terrestial sequestration. In this plants absorb or capture carbon dioxide through a process of phtotsynthesis,and when plants died or decompose ,then carbon deposit in the soil,that is the reason,we need to plant more trees for carbon sequestration to reduce global warming.

2.geological sequestration.in this process we can capture the carbon dioxide or deposit it from where we extract the fossil fuels and crued oil.when we extract the cruel oil so that place become empty so we deposit that captured carbon through some types of technology .

Like in company chimneys we can do to trap the carbon and other gases from that chimney and remove the carbon from other gases and then transport that carbon and deposit it in place of crued oil

3.marine sequestration.in this process phytoplankton do photosynthesis and they capture carbon,and when they died they decompose and carbon stored in the sediment of surface water and stored it for long time.

And different other ways to mitigate it by shifting to electric vehicles use of more solar pumps instead of diesel engines,use bs6 fuel.

It is very difficult task for the companies to use artificial sequestration because its cost is to high .firstly trap the carbon and other gases and then separate carbon from it so it is to complex and costly process.but to save environment we should go towards it

Carbon sequestration is the process of long-term capture or removal of carbon from the atmosphere and its storage in one or other form. It can be done in both natural and artificial manner.

IPCC in its special report has said that the rise in temperature of Earth has already exceeded the 1 degree limit of pre-industrial levels (in 2017). Thus, creation of carbon sink using natural methods like by increasing forest cover won’t be sufficient and support of artificial methods would become a necessity.

Various methods that can be applied for sequestration of carbon are:

plutus

1.Terrestrial methods: It includes creation of carbon sinks in forests, wetlands, peartland, soil based methods, agriculture,etc.  

2.Geological sequestration: which involves steps to store carbon in deep geological vents or in emptied oil reserves, gas reserves, slaine formations or shale formations via hydraulic fracturing,etc. 

3.Oceanic sequestration: carbon sink is created in the ocean water by processes like iron fertilisation, storage in biological systems like phytoplanktons and storage in deep oceanic vents.  

Sequestration of carbon is very important to achieve Under2Target of Paris climate deal. As per IPCC, 400 mn tonnes of carbon is to be captured by 202s, for this to happen. Thus, carbon capture would be the significant step in the direction of curbing issues like global warming and climate change- to make earth a better place to live in.
