Time to call bullshit on Carbon Capture

Not only does carbon capture technology fall short of the standards to significantly reduce carbon emissions, but it’s likely that using the technology could actually see fossil fuel plants pump out a greater amount of CO2 than if the technology isn’t fitted. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has long been the elusive solution to the climate crisis. Here at Rethink Energy we have been skeptical about how effective it could be at removing carbon from the atmosphere and a recent study from Stanford University has reaffirmed our worries. The research published in the journal Energy Environmental Science has highlighted that the low capture rates of the technology, along with the energy required to power a carbon capture system, mean that…
