Carbon Capture and Storage in europe (Video)

Development in "Carbon Capture and Storage" in Europe. More about ccs can be read under the CCS label bellow; including reports by the IPCC and MIT.



Global warming is one of the biggest issues of our time, the European Commission says in its description of this video report.

To meet the targets set for reducing CO2 emissions, it's widely accepted that new technology will play an important role sometimes as a "bridging technology"- while alternative sustainable energy sources are being developed.

One of the most promising technologies is Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). This a means of capturing CO2 from sources such as power plants, compressing the CO2 and storing it away safely in geological formations underground or under the seabed instead of releasing it into the atmosphere.

The video report shows: A CCS project under construction at a lignite power plant run by the energy company Vattenfall at Schwarze Pumpe, south of Berlin, An EU backed carbon storage project at Ketzin in Germany, A North Sea oil field run by the Norwegian company Statoil which was the first place in the world to begin CCS on a commercial basis, How both the EU and the US are working hard to develop the Carbon Capture and Storage technology.

Interviews with key figures including: Staffan Görtz, Vattenfall Professor Frank Schilling GFZ National Research Centre for Geo-Sciences Matti Vainio, Energy & Environment Unit, DG Environment, European Commission Boyden Gray, US Ambassador to the EU Arve Thorvik Statoil, Statoil Sleipner West gas rig

Let's take action against climate change. Sign this petition.

http://www.tree-nation.com?petition=25

With the release of An Inconvenient Truth last May,
Mr. Gore and the producers have managed to raise
awareness of this crisis and our part in it to a level
that will hopefully be sustained enough this year to
warrant some real progress.

This petition will be sent by me to Mr. Gore directly to Nashville, TN, U.S.A at the end of this month to show him the amount of support
people have for his work on the climate crisis, and to show their signatures pledging to help him that they will become climate
messengers and begin the work necessary that must be
done now to see positive change.

We can all do it this year. This can be the year we finally show
our Earth that we truly do care for her.

Please sign this petition for your planet and make a commitment you will never regret. Post your ideas in our group!!
