About this title

Synopsis:

Clean Energy, Climate and Carbon outlines the global challenge of decreasing greenhouse gas emissions (specifically CO2). With the general reader in mind, it covers the changing concentration of atmospheric CO2 through time and its causes, before considering the promise and the limitations of a wide range of energy technologies for decreasing CO2 emissions. Despite the need to decrease CO2, the fact is that the global use of fossil fuels is increasing and is likely to continue to do so for some decades to come. With this in mind, the book considers in detail, what for many people is the unfamiliar clean energy technology of carbon capture and storage (CCS). How can we capture CO2 from flue gases? How do we transport it? How do we store it in suitable rocks?
