But if you click on the link in Weiss’ tweet, you get this chart from MIT — which clearly indicates all plants are in the planning or construction phases, so no “adequate demonstration” and no sequestered CO2:

  1. Well, planning is adequate demonstration, isn’t it?

    I am planning to become a good man. Starting next week.

  2. And this is the guy who champions the wonders of his healthcare law which goes into effect shortly in all 57 states.

    • If you listen to the speech carefully, he actually claims there are sixty states.

      He visited 57 and had one more to go (58) and his handlers wouldn’t let him visit Alaska or Hawaii (60)

  3. Has Weiss invested in a CCS company?

  4. Almost all going to enhanced oil recovery. Going to be a lot of coal plants in the oil patch.

  5. The best form of “carbon capture” is knocking down old growth forests, using the wood for useful things (not to fuel power stations in England), and replanting.
    But that would not only be logical, it would also follow actual scientific and economic principles, and we can’t have that happening.

    • There’s good arguments to the effect that the logging booms coming out of the little ice age are exactly why CO2 got so unusually low to begin with.

  6. At least the outgoing Norwegian government has realized that it does not work (but only after spending billions).

  7. But they had good intentions.
