Sometimes people like to mock CCS being dubbed "clean coal" because there isn't such a thing as clean coal in terms of its entire environmental footprint, as this article points out. Still,CCS likely needed but should tone down the clean coal talking point…
While fossil fuels exist, any that do should have to sequester their emissions. But that will never make the damage they do in other areas clean and fossil fuels likely will never be held to account to the degree we have held other systems...*cough cough like nuclear cough*
Seriously, the only reason we internalized nuclear costs is because it is actually an achievable thing. When fossil fuels have to give a true accounting of their costs, no one would build them given the current alternatives.
