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.
