Is any solution a problem in disguise?

We all have been hearing about the concept Carbon Capturing since a while now, the idea and its premise seems plausible enough. Along with cutting down emissions, capturing what is already out there seems a logical step forward. Though the long term ramifications are not clear yet.

Going against what would naturally happen is always a scary situation. What if the environment is inversely affected by this? What if this one choice makes the future worst off?

It makes me wonder if in the process of creating solutions we are only setting off new problems in motion. Is any solution a problem in disguise?

McKinsley Quarterly has a new interactive exhibit "What is carbon capture and storage?" that provides a background for further discussion.
