Storing carbon inn rocks underground: Old oil fields may be less prone to induced earthquakes

Subsurface carbon sequestration — storing carbon in rocks deep underground — offers a partial solution for removing carbon from the atmosphere. Used alongside emissions reductions, geologic carbon sequestration could help mitigate anthropogenic climate change. But like other underground operations, it comes with risks — including earthquakes.
