Carbon capture technology is promoted as a "green" solution for reducing harmful emissions from coal- and gas-fired power plants. But a recent IEEFA study indicates that capture rates touted by proponents are unrealistic and often fail to take into account methane and other toxic emissions. Join authors David Schlissel and Dennis Wamsted for an online discussion of their findings.
