WRI's Venezia discusses new report on carbon capture and sequestration
As lawmakers look to implement policies that will help reduce our country's greenhouse gas emissions, one of the technologies they are considering is carbon capture and sequestration. Many issues remain unresolved with this technology, however. How will carbon be transported to sequestering sites? How will residents react to having carbon injected into the ground beneath their homes? Will CCS technologies become more affordable for utilities? How should the government be incentivizing the implementation of CCS technologies at power plants? During today's OnPoint, John Venezia, an associate at the World Resources Institute discusses a series of policy briefs on CCS technology being released by WRI. He addresses the hurdles facing this technology and discusses some of the opportunities that could come out of CCS implementation.
