Whether it should be part of a global climate mitigation strategy, however, remains controversial. One of the key issues is that, contrary to emission abatement, carbon sequestration might not be permanent. But some argue that even temporary sequestration is beneficial as it delays climate change impacts and"buys"time for technical change in the energy :// CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Carbon sequestration is believed to "buy time" for technical change in the energy sector. To assess rigorously this widespread argument, we build an intertemporal optimization model where both abatement of fossil fuel emissions and biomass sequestration can be used to mitigate climate ?doi=   Optimal Use of Carbon Sequestration in a Global Climate Change Strategy: Is there a Wooden Bridge to a Clean Energy Future?

Development Research Group. Environment and Infrastructure.]   Carbon Sequestration to Mitigate Climate Change Human activities, especially the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas, have caused a substantial increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO 2) in the atmosphere. This increase in atmospheric CO 2 —from about to Importance of the Study on Climate Change and Carbon Budget of China. Reducing CO 2 emissions to mitigate regional and global climate change is one of the most challenging issues facing humanity ().At present, China has the largest annual CO 2 emissions in the world (Upper graph in Fig. 1), placing it in the spotlight of efforts to manage global C emissions and design climate-change :// Carbon sequestration, both biotic and abiotic, is an important strategy for mitigating risks of global warming. It can influence the global C cycle over a short period and reduce the equilibrium level of atmospheric CO 2 until the alternatives to fossil fuel take ://
