There’s a recent article in the NYTimes reviewing some aspects of the upcoming battle over the administration’s new proposed power plant emissions rules and its optimistic take on carbon (dioxide) capture and storage (CCS):

E.P.A. rules sometimes demand technological advancements, but the goals that the agency establishes have to be met by techniques that existing law describes as “adequately demonstrated.”

This is a big question. As I’ve noted previously, we’d be better off not being so sanguine about being able to develop CCS, and instead put our efforts into conservation and renewable energy.
