Masdar’s Carbon Capture Program Could Lead to Mass Delirium and Comas

Green Prophet

Oil and gas companies believe that CCS will allow fossil-burning to continue unabated, but health leaders expose the potential for widespread human fatalities in the event of accidental leaks. We would need 6000 CCS programs storing 1 million tons of CO2 each.

Quick Take: How we can afford carbon capture right now

Conservancy Talk

I recently came across a thought-provoking piece by Thor Benson on The Verge , in which he argues that carbon removal strategies may be too expensive to be effective. During my years working on low-carbon innovation in the energy sector, I was struck by the time, effort and many millions of dollars the industry was investing to explore how to engineer a way to capture and store carbon dioxide below the earth’s surface.

However, batteries cannot carry all of the transportation sector, so there will be a need for other low-carbon fuels for airplanes, long-haul trucking and marine transport. Large scale land restoration such as this can sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. ©

GENUINELY CLEAN ENERGY MIX NEEDED

Green (Living) Review

And although the aim for no new coal-fired power stations to be built without carbon capture and storage (CCS) is well intentioned, very significant questions remain unanswered regarding its ability to help reduce our carbon emissions. De-carbonising electricity generation is a relatively low-cost option and would make a major contribution to targets.

Green Shoots in Budget Need Hard Backing

Investors will require further incentives in order to opt for carbon capture, renewables and nuclear – rather than other easier, relatively low risk options.’

George Monbiot and the enviro-neocons

Green Blog

Even in an extreme post-peak oil scenario, cuts in fossil fuel consumption, notably coal (the most abundant and carbon intensive fuel) would still be required, if we want to avoid dangerous climate change. In short, all these sources seem to conclude that it is doubtful that nuclear energy can compete with either future fossil fuel prices (even with added cost of CCS or the hikes in prices I mention above) nor with future renewable energy prices.

I don’t know the answer to that one, DVD sales are one idea, thought not ideal (can end up costing the producers more to make and distribute the DVD’s than they make back…and don’t get me started on carbon footprints here!) And worse still, as most of this carbon is released downstream, i.e
