Carbon Capture Can Cut Emissions But Environmentalists Oppose It

Real Clear Investigations has published a very interesting article discussing and up-and-coming technology called Carbon Capture that can drastically reduce carbon emissions and assist with power generation. Not surprisingly, environmentalists oppose carbon capture, not only because the technology benefits the fossil fuel industry, but it will slow down or even halt the use of renewables.

CNBC produced a report about carbon capture in March that touches on many of the elements of the Real Clear Investigations story. Even despite the technology’s drawbacks, the benefits are enormous.
