Phanerozoic CO2 atmospheric levels: Biosphere has been consuming CO2 and storing it in the lithosphere since the Cambrian explosion. The cyclic pattern is related with the tectonic cycles, named the Wilson Cycle, wich has formed two super continents during Phanerozoic period: Rodinia and Pangea. When a super continent breaks, a new ocean is formed and ...

The answer is The Carbon Cycle, which includes carbon cycling between atmosphere and oceans, vegetation and soils ensure the Earth does not run out. Volcanoes add very little in proportion to Plant Respiration or Soil Decomposition or Ocean Loss (or even fossil fuel burning) - but unlike those, volcanic CO2 (and similarly, fossil fuel CO2) is not accompanied ...

This article in the press cites CO2 has been converted into Carbon at relative low temperature. The research team led by RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, have developed a new technique that can efficiently convert CO2 from a gas into solid particles of carbon. To date, CO2 has only been converted into a solid at extremely high temperatures, making ...

A brief review of recent non-paywalled available literature indicates that such an effect likely exists but that it is difficult to quantify based on currently available data. Some amount of carbon from trees can be sequestered in the soil for periods time significantly longer than the typical above-ground decomposition time of organic matter, potentially ...
