The objective of this project was to research global warming and its effect on earth and society. We focused on the impacts of fossil fuels and the resulting increase of carbon dioxide emissions. The global climate models we used demonstrated a large increase in carbon dioxide concentrations due to anthropogenic sources. To mitigate the adverse effects of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere we considered geosequestration, metabolites and enzymes for plants, and the addition of carbonate ions into oceanic sinks.
