Lack of political will to account for the 'externalized costs' of pollution. Simple.

An accountable representative doesn't promise citizens benefits he can't deliver. We will not drive up the price of energy and fuel because of your climate fears.

CCS is a bottomless barrel.

Truckloads of money have been sunk into the idea for some years without results.

Should that concept ever be implemented it will drive electricity prices to gigantic heights because the consumer will have to pay for the monitoring and maintenance of the system. And it will build up and up and up.

Three years after introducing such a facility, the consumer will pay for the consequences of three years electricity production, 50 years later consumers will pay for the maintenance of a system that stores 50 years worth of CO2.

Now, how brain dead can they be?

Sequestration of CO2 is insane and beyond stupid.

Those who oppose 'sequestration of CO2', often oppose efficient use of fossil fuels.

Such people laugh at vehicles that exceed 40mpg & even 50mpg. Such people deride the electric car which often can obtain 100+mpg-equivalent, even reaching to 135+mpg-equivalent.

I use 100% gasoline, instead of the 10% ethanol blended gasolines. Go to pure-gas.org for maps & addresses of the minority of stations that have 100% gasoline. After testing 100% pure gas, our 3 cars have mpg increases of 7-8%, 7-8% & 6%, run smoother AND with a trace more power. Going up hill you do not have to shift down as much(or as in the case of my CVT vehicle, rpms are lower).

However, fossil fuel inefficiency advocates will NOT want to use 100% gasoline. The use of 10% ethanol blends actually use more fossil fuels, while burning 10% ethanol blends AND processing ethanol.

The government shouldn't encourage you to use less energy if they want a thriving economy. I want an energy policy that encourages the production and use of energy and fuel.

You encourage increased fuel use. I encourage efficient fuel use. There are efficiency advocates that indicate those two sentences are not mutually exclusive.
