    “Research into one of the most promising future green technologies is
    stagnating. Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) can take carbon
    dioxide out of the air and store it underground, but not efficiently -”
    In other words, like solar and wind, it’s another utterly cost-ineffective approach. There’s an extremely cost-effective alternative, it’s called photosynthesis!

    “Research into one of the most promising future green technologies is stagnating.”

    Thank God! Carbon capture is another of the alchemical myths beloved by the luddites pushing green (aka costly, burdensome, inefficient) “solutions” to non-problems allegedly presented by carbon (aka the sine-qua-non of life itself).

    The real race here is not to bring green technologies up to inexpensive usefulness but for real science to wrestle the dialog out of the hands of self-serving politicians and whacko magical thinkers.

    Higher CO2 levels increase crop yields. What kind of idiot wants to stop higher crop yields?!
