  • Carbon capture and storage: climate impacts

    One proposal for meeting targets for the reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) is to capture and store CO2 that is emitted by fossil fuel burning power stations. In a recent study, researchers demonstrated that carbon capture and storage (CCS) could help mitigate against climate change, especially in the short term. Using CCS, CO2 emitted from energy or industrial plants could be ...
