Canberra symposium discusses CCS
A lack of global action to combat climate change is forcing scientists to explore measures that might have been considered unethical a decade ago. The symposium found there was a sizeable difference between the perceived potential of these approaches and what is realistically achievable in the next 40 years. CCS technologies remain underfunded by industry and research and development is slow. At best, CCS can only be regarded as a part of the solution and has yet to demonstrate it is safe, effective, permanent and economically viable.
