The vast majority of carbon contained in the atmosphere exists in the form of carbon dioxide. At this point in time, carbon dioxide is present in the lower atmosphere at around 350 parts per million.

There are several theories as to what the best method for dealing with excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. One of the ways is to turn it into rock. The Grand Canyon is made up of carbonate rocks. Through relatively simple chemical reactions, scientists can mix carbon dioxide gas with catalysts and form it into rock. Another option is to seed the ocean with powdered iron to stimulate the growth of photosynthetic (use CO2 and give off oxygen) plankton. This is an incredibly powerful method, but is also risky because we don't really understand how this will affect the food chain of the oceans. Lastly, there is a place in Canada that is pumping carbon dioxide into the chambers left over from oil drilling. The CO2 is compressed into a supercritical state, where it behaves like a dense liquid. As a bonus, the CO2 helps to push out the oil, making the pumping more efficient. Thousands of tons of carbon dioxide have already been sequestered at just this facility. There are also huge bodies of water underground, where millions of more tons of CO2 can be sequestered.

All living things are large, living storage devices for carbon.

Carbon gas in the atmosphere is another one.
