Carbon sequestration

Seasonal variance.

Lots of talk on climate change. Lots of talk on atmospheric Carbon Dioxide concentration. Geosequestration of carbon dioxide seems like an expensive and tech-heavy operation.

One voice said 'Want to reduce carbon dioxide concentrations? Simple: plant lots of trees.'

Or, bamboo. Apparently eucalyptus is good, too.

Also good for sequestering Crouching tigers and Hidden dragons.

Carbon - hungry species versus potentially invasive plant. Does Australia have any native bamboo species? Would eucalyptus be a better, indigenous option?
