Burying Greenhouse Gas Emissions.

Remember the name "Thornton, CA." If a pilot project paid for by the US Department of Energy and the California Energy Commission is successful, Thornton, CA may go down in history as the town that saved the planet from global warming.

Thornton's unique geology makes it the perfect spot to test technology desinged to trap greenhouse gas underground, preventing its emission into the atmosphere. The Thornton test will focus on carbon dioxide emissions from power plants.
