UK's first carbon capture & storage project planned for 2020s
by Paul Davies
What's Going On Here?
What Does This Mean?
Carbon capture or sequestration (word of the day) is 'a natural or artificial process by which carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere and held in solid or liquid form.'
1. Stop CO2 from entering the atmosphere at source e.g. power-station
2. Remove CO2 from the atmosphere once it's there (it's already there)
Summary: we need to clean up the grid by converting to renewable energy as well as cleaning up after ourselves by capturing and storing carbon.
Why Should We Care?
If you are interested in tracking the atmospheric CO2 levels, check out co2.earth (latest reading 408.43ppm).
Are you planning to fly anywhere in the next 12 months? Do you need to?Can you get there by another mode of transport?
A simple way to reduce your CO2e emissions, don't fly!
