Problems With Coal CO2 Capture For Sequestration

Thank you for the info. Wouldn't it be ironic for "do gooders" to create deadly earthquakes while saving us from global warming.

The addition I would make is how the big oil lobby figures into this story. Big oil companies want government subsidies for pumping CO2 into their oil wells; the real purpose of such pumping would be to increase the yield of oil. It makes no sense to sequester CO2 as it feeds our plants. Politicians understand that if they are able to sell the story that they are fixing planet earth, they will be the re-elected partly because of full campaign war chests. Plenty of scientist are willing to "do the research", provided government grants are available. This is all a game of I'll scratch your back if you will scratch mine.
