Is Carbon Capture An Excuse To Burn More Fossil Fuels?!

Helen Czerski investigates this contentious topic of Carbon Capture and Storage.

“An Open Sewer” that’s how Former Vice President Al Gore, at the recent World Economic Forum in Davos said that we’re treating the atmosphere given the amount of CO2 we’re dumping in it.

But what if we could take back the Carbon from the atmosphere and store it or, even better, remove it completely? Could that fix the Climate Crisis and get us to Net Zero?

That’s the hope of Carbon Capture and Storage and Carbon Dioxide Removal Companies and, perhaps unsurprisingly, Oil Companies.

So we thought it was time to find out whether CCS and CDR is an effective solution, or an excuse to continue burning fossil fuels or even, a necessary sidekick to renewable energy.
