Oops. I forgot to mention that only government can mandate carbon capture. It will always be more expensive over the short term to install carbon capture technology on coal, oil or gas fired power plants. It'll always be cheaper to persist in the psychotic delusion that it's "free" to emit just carbon into the atmosphere.<quoted text>
I meant "psychotically hallucinating that it's 'free' TO EMIT CARBON INTO THE ATMOSPHERE WITHOUT RESTRAINT.
Yet if we can't get enough energy from conservation, renewable sources & revamped nuclear, our only choice may be burning fossil fuels with carbon capture.
Government is not the enemy. At least if we don't like what they're doing, we can vote them out.
Unless you're a large stockholder, OTOH, you don't get to vote on corporate behavior. Yes, you can take your money elsewhere, but ONLY if a strong government is doing its job & preventing monopolistic & oligopolistic behavior. They usually do well on the former, not so well on the latter.
