Al Gore: World Is on Brink of "Carbon Bubble" | Mother Jones

Gore told the Guardian : "This is potentially the largest bubble ever. If investors look in a clear-eyed, traditional risk management way, they can be in time ......

EPA chief tells Grist what coal will have to do to survive in a "carbon-constrained" future | Grist

Is carbon capture and sequestration realistic? A. Yeah, I do think that it is realistic. We are very confident that the data is showing that carbon capture and sequestration is technologically feasible and it's ......

Will the EPA Kill Coal? | Mother Jones

...... to meet the new benchmark, they'd have to substantially cut their carbon emissions (a comparable natural-gas plant clocks about 790). To do this, they'd have to use a process called "carbon capture and storage," (CCS) where carbon is separated from emissions. And according to experts, there's still a long way to go before that's economically viable. EPA chief Gina McCarthy says she doesn't ......

Could Photosynthesis Be Our Best Defense Against Climate Change? | Mother Jones

...... more without upsetting the balance of natural systems. Using photosynthesis and agriculture to extract carbon should not be confused with other methods that sound similar, such as "carbon capture and sequestration." CCS, as experts call it, is a technology that would capture carbon dioxide released when a power plant burned coal (or, in theory, other fossil fuels) to generate electricity. A ......

Listen: "The Climate of the 2020s and the 2030s is Already Preordained" | Mother Jones

We clearly need an Apollo-scale project on things such as carbon capture and storage. No single country should go it alone: We need Europe to work together with the US, Japan, China, and the private sector for the technologies we need for tomorrow. It's quite clear: ......

Burning Trees for Energy and Capturing CO2 Could Reverse Global Warming | Mother Jones

...... have also questioned the carbon benefits of burning trees for power, saying that in some cases the "lifecycle" emissions are worse than coal. Dr Vivian Scott of Scottish Carbon Capture Storage at the University of Edinburgh, who was not involved with the research, said that the basis for the research's conclusion was sound, but he warned it should not be interpreted "as a 'get out ......

The researchers' goal is to see if carbon sequestration could potentially be profitable for struggling Christmas tree farmers who want to sell offsets, or amounts of carbon dioxide emissions avoided.

Why Is It So Hard to Clean Up Coal? | Mother Jones

...... to clean up coal. "That's by far the biggest barrier to the whole thing," says Revis James of the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), an industry group. The "energy penalty" for carbon capture and storage (CCS for short) can be as high as 28 percent. Cost: With current technology, CCS increases the price of coal-generated electricity as much as 94 percent—and in the absence of ......

There's a reason why Wall St. is reluctant to finance nukes in the US without loan guarantees. Even if we ignore the persistent ......

Brainstorming a New Approach to Climate Policy | Mother Jones

...... climate change? Perhaps the most radical suggestion is to move energy research into the national security realm, with the Department of Defense pushing for breakthroughs in wind power, carbon capture, and so forth. But other ideas abound. In the near-term, as many as one-third of the nation's aging fleet of coal plants could go (or be pushed) offline. This period of transition could be a key ......
