The Hope of an Alternative Way to Use Coal

Eco Friendly Daily

Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) offers a compromise solution. CSS reduces emissions by capturing carbon dioxide for ultimate storage underground. The oil industry uses a form of underground carbon dioxide injection to improve oil recovery.

The good, the bad and the ugly: Carbon capture and storage

EcoFriend

Sonia Renthlei: It’s been said that the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is steadily increasing. With this mind, there is a practice which involves capturing carbon dioxide and storing it for various purposes.

Shock: a useful post on a Friday afternoon

Environmental Economics

The WSJ Weekly Micro alerted me to this article ( Should There Be a Price on Carbon? ): Supporters say making industries that burn fossil fuels pay to spit out carbon dioxide would encourage a shift to cleaner, alternative-energy sources by making it more expensive to burn coal, gasoline or natural gas. Others favor a simpler tack: Tax companies on the carbon they emit. Critics, meanwhile, say any price on carbon is misguided.

Carbon Dioxide News

Living In a Toxic World

I found a couple of articles yesterday about carbon dioxide that I though were interesting. The second is about the recent desire for a cap-and-trade program on CO2 emissions and how there might be unintended consequences if the price drops and it becomes cheaper to pollute. Cap-and-trade, while a good idea, will only facilitate the continued pollution because we have no alternatives. The first is about a company that is converting CO2 into liquid fuel.

In CO2 emissions it is better still.
