A previous post said:

I thought we were talking about CO2 gas and in a frivolous moment I wondered how big a volume of CO2 would be if it were compressed to the same density as the Rock, assuming it were possible, hence the calculation.  However I wasn't entering into any debate on the original statement.

And it's not as though I don't have anything better to do... (:-)
