Most cryonics patients are stored in liquid nitrogen, which does not 
require "power" (just regular replenishing) and produces no "carbon output" 
or "radioactive waste." There is talk of storing at higher temperatures 
than liquid nitrogen, but again it is agreed that a "passive system" with 
no power consumption would be best for the long term.
