North Sea Carbon Dioxide Storage

OK. So it looks like it will be possible to store CO2 in the porous rock under the North Sea, potentially opening the way for the large-scale application of Carbon Capture and Storage (CSS).

I'm no scientist but I need to ask the question: after the "hundreds of years" that the gas can be safely stored, what happens then?

Is this just another nuclear waste story - store it somewhere until we think of what to do with it in the long term?

Informed answers are welcome.
