I applaud the carbon capture research. I just see it as very dangerous to over hype the tech as has been done recently. It is not a panacea to our carbon emission problems. If you look at who is looking to commercialize the tech, it's the big oil companies like Occidental etc. They want to use the recovered gas in enhanced oil recovery operations.

We don't have some wonderful endless supply of clean grid power to fuel these sorts of endeavors yet. If we did, it would make sense to first construct whatever grid infrastructure (and storage) is needed to bring that power to population centers.

This business with the Russians and Saudi's manipulating the markets is yet another reason why we need to wean our economy off fossil fuels asap.
I'm optimistic that the next 4 years will bring new leadership and much improved policy.
