Carbon capture and storage has been touted as a useful weapon in the fight against climate change. Environments like salt marshes, mangroves and sea grass meadows can capture and store carbon in the ground for millions of years. Dr Peter Macreadie is one of the Australian scientists at the forefront of 'blue carbon' sites, which can supposedly capture carbon 40 times faster than tropical rainforests and hopefully store it for millions of years.
