GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) The rolling prairie lands of northeastern Wyoming have already been a paradise of lush, knee-deep grass for sheep, cattle and pronghorn antelope come early july.
But its another green greener energy that geologist Fred McLaughlin seeks as he drills nearly two miles (3.2 kilometers) in to the ground, far deeper compared to the thick coal seams that produce this the very best coal-mining region in the usa. McLaughlin and his University of Wyoming colleagues are studying whether tiny spaces in rock deep underground can permanently store vast volumes of greenhouse gas emitted by way of a coal-fired power plant.
