CCS/CCUS has been moved front and center in federal policies and plans to address climate change. This webinar, entitled “Carbon Capture and Storage: Climate Savior or False Solution” will take a closer look at the impacts of CCS/CCUS, its potential for significantly reducing carbon emissions and what the alternatives might be if we want to curtail rising global temperatures.
It is clear that the path we take now in tackling climate change will have profound effects on the future. We also know that at a time when we need to commit to implementing effective climate mitigation measures, personal and organizational perspectives on CCS/CCUS vary from full support to adamant opposition. With the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, the U.S. is now poised to invest literally hundreds of billions of dollars on CCS/CCUS infrastructure. The question before us is “is this a wise use of precious time and money?”
