Een citaat: "Permanent storage of carbon dioxide in porous layers, and creating new sinks made of carbon containing waste and biomass that is especially grown for this purpose… That, I think, will be the challenge for those who really want to tackle the greenhouse effect. Economising is a universal human reflex when the future poses a threat, but in this case it is not the solution. Scientists still have the alchemist in their genes who wants to create gold and perpetual motion, but now they must concentrate on sweeping the floors of their laboratories and safely dumping the refuse. It will take some getting used to. But once the public, governments and scientists realise that spending so much money and effort on finding perpetual motion while in the mean time carbon is squeezed out of the earth everywhere while none of their efforts will stop it, there will have to be a turning point."
