“Regardless of the claims of pundits and critics, traditional sources of energy and industrial methods are a critical component to our nation’s economy, security, and even our way of life. Even though more work is necessary, carbon capture can ensure continued American leadership in those industries and reduce our impact on the environment.”

“It is estimated that the demand for energy across the country could grow nearly 50 percent by the year 2050, making carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technologies as important as ever in the fight against climate change. CCUS will not only help America meet the growing demand for energy, but will also be critical...

“I think one thing we can all agree to is the world needs to reduce its carbon emissions and I think we are on the same page here…Carbon capture technology must become commercially viable, the New Source Review program must be reformed, and the U.S. will need to develop a pipeline system to dispose of...

“If we stop all carbon from going into the air tomorrow…there’s still too much carbon in the air…So I think it’s a mistake to leave carbon sequestration out of the conversation if we really want to get to the levels of carbon that people are talking about.”

“We should break down regulatory barriers that hamper research and development and encourage investments into current and emerging technologies, including carbon capture, renewable hydropower, nuclear power, and energy storage. The United States is at the forefront of clean-energy efforts, and we must continue to leverage current capabilities. Nuclear power generation – which accounts for 20...

“We have introduced a number of bills aimed at capturing, utilizing, and storing carbon, all based on the understanding that natural gas and other fossil energy sources are not the problem, emissions are. So instead of destroying entire industries and the jobs they provide, we should invest in technologies that reduce or eliminate these emissions,...

“As a farmer who has seen the effects of climate change first-hand, I believe we should address global greenhouse gas emissions and support clean American energy…we should be focusing on developing the tools needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, like advanced nuclear energy, carbon capture, and greater energy storage capacity. Investing in innovation has proven...

“Carbon capture will help ensure we can continue to power the American economy and continue to lead the world in emissions reduction. American innovation – not government regulation – is the path to success for our environment and our economy.”

“Those technologies, known as carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration, or CCUS, present a win-win for America. Rather than be emitted into the atmosphere, CCUS gives us the opportunity to convert carbon dioxide into a useful commodity. Not only do these technologies allow for the continued viability of the existing fleet of fossil fuel plants, but...
