What is the difference between carbon capture and carbon storage?

    Carbon capture and storage usually go together, but carbon capture is the act of capturing carbon from the environment, and carbon storage is the act of storing that carbon, often underground.  There are many ways of carbon capture, and many times they are employed at power plants and other large manufacturing facilities to capture the carbon that would go into the atmosphere, and instead ships it, often through pipelines, to an underground storage facility.  There are many areas under or the surface of the earth that are basically big pockets that can be used to hold CO2 and keep it from becoming a greenhouse gas in our environment.
