We could conceivably store the excess CO2 created by burning fossil fuels since you are just putting it back in the ground, where it came from in the first place. You don't want to get all the CO2, plants breathe it.
The real issue here is that the cost will probably be prohibitive. The power needed to extract the CO2 from the air and force it into the ground will be quite large. There is no financial return whatsoever from any of this, so it will require a large tax increase or rise in energy price to pay for it. Got any good walking shoes?
