+ - Genetically Engineered Bacteria Could Help Fight Climate Change->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "As humans warm the planet by releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, some researchers believe that capturing CO2 and trapping it in buried rocks could lower the risk of catastrophic climate change. Now a team of researchers has shown that bacteria can help the process along. They can even be genetically modified to trap CO2 faster, keeping it underground for millions of years."
