Carbon capture and storage projects? More, please
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects hold serious promise: By repurposing carbon dioxide emissions produced from fossil fuels during electricity generation and industrial processes, they can slash the amount of the greenhouse gas that enters the atmosphere. But a September report by the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University and the Global CCS Institute shows that to make a dent in global emissions—namely to minimize global warming to an increase of 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) by mid-century—more projects are needed. Like, a lot more.
