In an otherwise reasonable summary of some proposed major changes being suggested by the NYS Public Service Commission in how electrical utilities and their grids would operate, the reporter adds this unattributed cautionary note:
“Burning natural gas in thousands of locations would make it almost impossible to capture carbon from power plants and pump it underground to avoid worsening climate change.”
Now leaving aside the whole question of the claims of the AGW crowd, the big problem here, and no doubt the reason the reporter didn’t actually quote anyone by name for this paragraph, is that there isn’t a single production sized facility that is using (so called) carbon (dioxide) sequestration. There are a bunch of test programs, and there’s an oil/natural gas farm that’s reinjecting the CO2 contaminant back underground, and they all strongly suggest that there just ain’t no there, there.
