Argument: CCS passes C02-leakage problem to our children
Peter Montague, PhD Executive Director of the Environmental Research Foundation. "Carbon Sequestration: What's the Point?" December 1, 2008: "Instead of solving the CO2 problem that we've created, CCS would pass the problem along to our children and their children and their children's children. Basically, buried CO2 could never be allowed to leak back out. We should take responsibility for our own problems, not pass them to our children to manage. Scientists paid by the fossil fuel companies say the CO2 will never leak back out of the ground. What if they're mistaken? Then our children will inherit a hot, acid-ocean, ruined world."
