Let’s consider the silliness and cost of carbon capture and sequestration

Maybe it goes away without anyone noticing–you may recall we have condemned it as unworkable and very expensive here at JS.

  1. Trees and other vegetation are natural forms of carbon sequestration and capture. Coal deposits are long-term carbon sequestration and capture.

    What drives me nuts is that the beautifully ordered carbon chains bound up as coal are transformed to the chaotic motions of exhausted carbon dioxide is how thermodynamics provides a source of usable energy. The only way to put carbon dioxide into the frozen ordered state for sequestration is to give back the energy derived from burning. How is it that Dr. Moniz misses this thermodynamic truism? Did he get his PhD out of a Cracker Jack box?

    • You are right. Plants use sunlight to concert disordered CO2 into ordered chains of carbon.

      About 97% of current PhDs seem to have graduated from Cracker Box institutions.
