Can Carbon Capture Be the Solution to Climate Change?

Date: 
Thu, Oct 17, 2019 - 6:30pm to 9:00pm

As the consequences of global warming become more evident - record-breaking floods, droughts, forest fires, etc. – the search for solutions becomes more urgent. What if we could capture carbon for useful purposes, like making bendable concrete or stronger, lighter metals for the transportation industry? Are carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) or carbon capture and utilization (CCU) viable solutions for solving the climate crisis, or are they simply diverting funds from other clean energy research?
