carbon capture & storage

Scientists are developing and improving "clean" energy sources. But for the next hundred years, the world will continue to rely on fossil fuels like coal and natural gas for its electricity. Sadly, burning these fuels using current technology pollutes the air with carbon dioxide. One solution is to capture this greenhouse gas before it enters the atmosphere, then store it as a liquid. This process is called carbon capture and storage (CCS).
