Well constructed bullshit. The claim is that to meet emission standards, coal power plants will have to use CCS (which they claim could kill). Well that CO2 storage could kill is not unreasonable. What is unreasonable is the claim that ONLY CCS could meet the standard.
"The EPA will also issue new emissions standards for newly constructed natural gas plants, which will be permitted to emit no more than 1,000 pounds of C02 per megawatt hour, according to the official. Thatís essentially the level that cleaner burning natural gas plants perform at already. "
If a standard natural gas plant can pass muster, then a coal plant using gassification (IGCC) and a GE (62% efficiency) gas turbine could ALSO meet the goal.
CCS will be used where conditions are safe, not recklessly as 'predicted' here.
