LOS ANGELES , July 16, 2013 () – Researches at the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden recently published a study in the Environmental Research Letters journal showing that global warming could potentially be reversed through a combination of burning wood biomass and employing technology that would capture and store carbon dioxide emissions underground (CSS), The Guardian reported on July 11.

This approach will only be effective before the increase in temperature reduces the available number of trees, researchers cautioned. The bioenergy and CSS method could potentially reverse a temperature increase in excess of 2 degrees Celsius, said lead author Prof Christian Azar.

The bioenergy and CSS method is the most cost-effective way to deal with carbon emissions and could potentially even offset carbon emissions from fossil fuel, according to the study.

In order to reverse the increase in temperatures, there must also be a large expansion in nuclear power or renewable energy, said Prof Christian Azar.
