A complete an utter waste of time, money and energy. Throwing money down the toilet would have the same effect

We believe the development of CCS in the UK is vital to decarbonising industry

The Conversation: Time to admit CCS has failed: here's what we should do instead

Quote:
Together with the government giving greater priority to renewable energy like offshore wind and solar, you have a viable plan for delivering the UK’s carbon goals. CCS may still have its place, but as a means of removing carbon emissions from burning things like wood and rubbish as opposed to fossil fuels. Suffice to say it looks more promising on that front.

But in short, it is time for governments to stop wasting time and money on technologies like CCS that aren’t working. They need to finally get serious about leading a major drive for energy efficiency instead

If they insulated our homes and other buildings properly they could save 80% of the gas that is used for heating. That's about 40% of the gas use in this country so there's a 32% saving on the nation's energy bill and emissions straight off.

But that would have implications for the profits of the energy companies, the GDP and Growth so is unacceptable to the idiot economists who guide policy in this country and the rest of the world as well. Perhaps we should start shooting economists to put them, and us, out of their misery!! They shoot horses don't they!
