ES FINAL ESSAY BRAINSTORM 02:24 Carbon Sequestration Program helping to develop technologies to capture, separate, and store carbon  dioxide (CO 2 ) in order to reduce green-house gas emissions without adversely  influencing energy use or hindering economic growth. Helps lower atmospheric CO2 CO2 emissions have increased immensely over the last few years to annual  emissions of more than 33 billion tons today. If no initiative is taken, it is projected that there will be 6,850 million metric  tons (7,550 million tons) of CO 2  per year by 2030, increasing 2005 emission  levels by more than 14 percent. lowering the cost and energy penalty associated with CO 2  capture from large  point sources improving the understanding of factors affecting CO 2  storage permanence,  capacity, and safety in geologic formations and terrestrial ecosystems.  Once  these objectives are met, new and existing power plants and fuel processing
