This is probably the most extensive, comprehensive study of carbon dioxide capture and storage ever undertaken. Prepared under the aegis of Working Group III (Mitigation of Climate Change) of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), it addresses a wide range of technical, economic and policy issues in great detail. The prose isn’t lively, but fortunately for the general reader, the text includes lucid executive summaries at the beginning of each chapter. getAbstract highly recommends this report to those who genuinely want to know the details of this potential (albeit partial) solution to the climate change problem.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reported about carbon dioxide capture, storage and transport (CCS);
  • What issues are involved; and
  • Whether or not it will mitigate climate change.

About the Author

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a scientific body tasked to evaluate the risk of climate change caused by human activity. The panel was established in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), two organizations of the United Nations.



Policy Considerations
Carbon dioxide capture, transport and storage (CCS) involves isolating carbon dioxide (CO2) gas, and moving it to someplace where it can be shut away so that it cannot affect the atmosphere. This is one of the ways experts suggest dealing with climate change, since...
