DOE giving $575 million in carbon capture grants
Sac. Bee ^ | 9/7/10 | FREDERIC J. FROMMER

Posted on 09/07/2010 5:33:17 PM PDT by Nachum

WASHINGTON - The Energy Department said Tuesday it was awarding $575 million for carbon capture research-and-development projects in 15 states. The experimental technique involves storing carbon dioxide emissions from coal plants and other sources underground, in an attempt to reduce pollution blamed for contributing to global warming. "This is a major step forward in the fight to reduce carbon emissions from industrial plants," said Energy Secretary Steven Chu. "These new technologies will not only help fight climate change, they will create jobs now and help position the United States to lead the world in clean coal technologies, which will only increase in demand in the years ahead."

STOP!!!

Its not just the feds, although they are the worse.
It is the local and state governments too.
They are all just wildly dreaming up new projects to spend money we do not have.

They are worse than drug addicts because drug addicts have to have the cash before they can get their fix.

CARBON CAPTURE? They need all of this money to do what; tell people they can’t use freon?

What in the hell exactly is carbon capture other than more wasteful spending?

I’d sure like to see the plan for how the money will be spent. I think about $574.9 million could be trimmed.

Here’s one more easy way to trim the size of government.

The real potential problem is that some republican thinks he has some company that could use a protion of this money. That was the problem for all the Delay Hasstert etc etc republicans - they voted for their friends companies to get gov money!!

This was never about fixing a real problem, for gosh sakes!   This has always been about finding nefarious ways to take money from those they don't like to be able to give it to those they do--including themselves, of course. Toward that end, it's been a raving success.

“.....The experimental technique involves storing carbon dioxide emissions from coal plants and other sources underground.....”

The Leftists are like a broken record repeating over and over again the same stupid lines. They take this “technique” from one of their oldest, and most favorite tricks of sweeping their dirt under the rug. The result will be the usual. The dirt is under the rug, and we are supposedly so stupid we don’t know the dirt is under the rug.

They are so clever.

Because they have to sequester two oxygen atoms for every carbon atom, permanently removing oxygen from the biosphere, it should more correctly be called oxygen capture.

Perhaps if they were really thinking, they might make a run of CO2 fire extinguishers?

CO2 is NOT pollution

This is an absolute waste of money.

It is an experiment that could have unintended consequences in the future. At some point in the future, there will be some of this CO2 that makes it back out of the reservoirs. Who will be the legal fall guy?

Besides, nobody has proven man is causing climate change. Even the believers say anything man can (they say should) do will have no effect.

Why waste the money?
