Carbon Biosequestration Opportunities from Rural Land Use

An Analysis of Greenhouse Gas Mitigation and Carbon Biosequestration Opportunities from Rural Land Use
This 172-page CSIRO report estimates the amount of greenhouse gases that can be stored or mitigated by changes in rural land use in Queensland and more broadly, Australia.

The report shows that storing waste carbon in agricultural soils or forests is a simple and viable technology ready to be used right now. This is in contrast to the "new coal" technologies which will probably not be ready for decades. Some Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) proposals, such as Enhanced Coal Bed Methane, face many environmental problems because they require hydraulic fracturing of the coal seems. Hydrofraccing converts huge quantities of fresh water to toxic waste which is not acceptable under Australian conditions.
