Proposal to Fight Global Warming May Threaten Oceans

Researchers find that freezing gas to combat global warming may significantly harm marine life. Scientists have suggested capturing carbon dioxide gas from factory smokestacks and pumping it two miles under the ocean's surface. Freezing temperatures at that depth turn the CO2 into a slushy solid, which sinks to the ocean floor.
