New Study Shoots Down Exxon-Massey's Pipedream of Carbon Sequestration

A new research paper from American academics is threatening to blow a hole in growing political support for carbon capture and storage as a weapon in the fight against global warming. The document from Houston University claims that governments wanting to use CCS have overestimated its value and says it would take a reservoir the size of a small US state to hold the CO2 produced by one power station.

Sometimes it seems that people are so engrossed in finding ANY possible means to help them get out of a bind that they shut off their brains and ignore common sense. This seems to be the case with Exxon et. al. in this situation.
