"Clean coal": Is pumping sequestered gases into oil reserves a solution?

  • Fff ff s a

    Majority of fossil fuel emissions now come from the developing world, mainly China and India. Cheap energy in the form of fossil fuels is what powers these countries' economies and is allowing them to become powerful players on the international stage. These nations consider global economic and political power to be their right, especially after over a hundred years of domination by Western nations which either colonized their countries (India) or forced them into uneven trade relations (China).

    The only way China and India and other developing nations will cut back on their fossil fuel consumption is if wealthy Western nations will subsidize their fuel. Western nations are unwilling to do this (it's a politically toxic), so China and India and others continue to burn fossil fuels unabated, because they see the costs of global climate change to be worth the economic power fossil fuels bring

  • No, clean coal is not a solution.

    No, clean coal is not a solution. We are pursuing a source of energy that is not the best for the environment. Dependence on fossil fuels also not reasonable because the resources are limited. We should be using and creating a better and cleaner way to create energy besides pumping sequestered gases into oil reserves.

  • There Are Better Alternatives Than "Clean Coal"

    Dependence on fossil fuels has become an increasingly serious problem, both because the supply is finite and because they are bad for the environment. "Clean Coal" fails to address the finite supply at all, and is not the most eco-friendly of the alternative energy sources. The best solution is to stop using coal and fossil fuels at all and focus on completely clean and renewable energy sources.
