Carbon capture and sequestration is pure fantasy…. and Obama and Ernest Moniz know that.
The Associated Press reports:
President Barack Obama and the U.S. Department of Energy are committed to a role for coal in a national energy strategy, and they’ve backed it up with research spending, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said Monday.
In a visit to the National Energy Technology Laboratory in Morgantown — the only one of the federal government’s 17 national labs dedicated to fossil fuels — Moniz said the administration has spent $6 billion on clean-coal technology with an emphasis on the capture, storage and reuse of carbon emissions.
“We have an ‘all of the above’ strategy, and it’s real,” he said.
