Carbon capture could be climate change solution, or a waste of time

Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy announced $110 million in federal funding for research and development of carbon capture and storage projects.
According to DOE, carbon capture and storage technologies, or CCS, are “increasingly becoming widely accepted as a viable option” for coal- or gas-fired power plants to reduce their emissions.
