The Union of Concerned Scientists yesterday (October 15, 2008) released “Coal Power in a Warming World,” which
examines the pros and cons of a proposed technology that would capture coal plant carbon dioxide emissions and store them underground. UCS supports construction of five to 10 full-scale demonstration projects to test carbon-capture-and-storage technology’s ability to cut emissions. The report also says no new coal plants should be built that do not capture and store carbon emissions. The country can meet its near-term energy needs and curb emissions using readily available renewable-energy technologies.
