Please join SEHN for a one and a half hour briefing on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).

CCS is being touted as a climate solution. In this webinar, a leading climate scientist and engineer, a biologist, a physician and a community organizer will describe the hazards and risks associated with plans of the fossil fuel industry to capture, transport and store CO2. Is it really a climate solution? How does it work? What are the economics and who is paying for it? Is this the best alternative? What do we need to know to make informed decisions about climate change?

If you are in government, the media or an interested member of the public, this briefing will help you evaluate the claims made about CCS.
