Carbon sequestration is being pursued as one of the possible ways humanity can control the rate at which greenhouse gases are introduced into the atmosphere. The aim would be to limit the negative impacts of global climate change on humanity and the ecosphere as a whole. How aggressively this option is pursued will depend on perceived dangers. I shall review some of the climate science community's perspectives of these dangers and the primary sources of uncertainty. Much of my own discussion will be placed within the context of interests that have been expressed within a Jackson School Climate Initiative. A copy of this initiative can be found at here.
