Her talk continues the CAS Inquire (https://cas.unl.edu/cas-inquire) series' 2023-2024 theme of “Sustainable Futures” by discussing the storage of carbon dioxide in underground rock formations to help combat climate change.

"Whilst carbon dioxide storage alone is not the silver bullet for solving climate change, it is a necessary part of the transition to a future that is less dependent on oil and gas," Burberry (https://eas.unl.edu/cara-burberry) said. "Case studies will be used to illustrate progress, ongoing challenges, and, more importantly, successes in the global development of this exciting technology."

CAS faculty members Patrick Bitterman (geography), Mark van Roojen (philosophy), Ken Bloom (physics), and Julia Frengs (French) gave previous talks in the series, offering perspectives from each discipline connected to the theme. A panel discussion with the speakers in March 2024 will cap the series.

Launched in September 2019, CAS Inquire themes have included “The Rise of the Machines,” “Searching for Common Ground in a Polarized World,” and “Pain and Pleasure.”
