Carbon Capture - A False Solution


More than 500 organizations in an open letter called on political leaders in the United States and Canada to reject carbon capture and storage (CCS) and Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS)  as "a false solution" that has become "a dangerous distraction driven by the same big polluters who created the climate emergency." They said, “CCS just makes dirty energy more expensive and energy-intensive.” 

 Nikki Reisch, Director of the Climate & Energy Program for the Center for International Environmental Law said, “CCS is life support for the fossil fuel industry — and a death sentence for the planet. We need to ditch fossil fuels, not ‘fix’ them with technologies that are dangerous, costly, unproven at scale, and at odds with environmental justice.
