Carbon capture sounds like a good solution to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, but I am a bit concerned; 2/3 of CO2 is oxygen, while what was extracted from underground was only carbon. This means that if many countries now start capturing CO2, billions of tons of oxygen will also be captured underground. What will happen with the atmosphere when billions of tons of oxygen are removed every year? isn't this a bit risky? can for instance the air pressure change? Trees would have released the oxygen from the CO2, and captured only the carbon. With this artificial capture, the natural process is interrupted, and the oxygen is also removed from the air. Has anybody looked into the potential consequences of this to life on our planet?
