The Ideology and Reality of Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage

Philip Rosetti & Robert G. Eccles write in RealClearEnergy about the benefits of carbon capture.

The C3 Take
  • Some environmentalists have shunned carbon capture and storage because they think it is a win for the oil and gas industries.
  • The reality is that fossil fuels are not going away anytime soon as much of the world is still dependent on hydrocarbons for a vast majority of their energy needs.
  • Carbon capture offers a win-win to consumers and the planet by capturing emissions without making energy more scarce or expensive.

“In the future, we will see plane tickets that are carbon neutral thanks to carbon dioxide removal, and natural gas power plants that have no pollution at all. These are opportunities to be welcomed, rather than solutions to be shunned for the unforgivable sin of not being an environmental activists’ preferred climate solution.”
