This study explores two ways to sequester carbon and effectively mitigate climate change. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) refers to technology designed to sequester carbon from the atmosphere. Blue Carbon refers to carbon sequestered and stored by marine ecosystems, like estuaries. While both methods of carbon sequestration can be beneficial, Blue Carbon proved more effective in many comparisons, while CCS was less beneficial. However, emission levels are higher than the amount that is sequestered by both methods. This demonstrates a need to also focus on concrete solutions to reduce or eliminate carbon production.
