Carbon Capture: The Key Answer on Climate Change

Dan Ervin writes in RealClearEnergy about the importance of carbon capture in addressing climate change.

The C3 Take
  • Carbon capture is essential for decarbonizing fossil fuels, which the United States currently uses for roughly 80% of power generation.
  • Carbon capture will also be useful in decarbonizing economies that are rapidly growing such as India or China.
  • Carbon capture, along with renewables and nuclear energy, is essential for our energy mix and for reaching global climate objectives.

“It’s absolutely critical that U.S. energy policy recognizes that American climate leadership will come directly from coal country and advanced fossil fuel technologies along with innovative nuclear reactor designs.”
