TUE, SEP 20, 2022
Despite the hype, carbon capture and storage (CCS) is not a solution to the CO2 problem that has caused global warming. Taxpayers continue to pay for the federal investment of billions of dollars that are subsidizing fossil-fuel industry’s CCS projects.
And those projects have consistently failed to reduce CO2.
Dr. Harvey discusses how these ineffective CCS projects continue to be promoted and he explains the necessity of shifting to renewable energy, which can be done now and with much less expense.
