Carbon Capture and Sequestration
Broadcast Date: July 15, 2010

Coal is the largest source of electricity, not just in Pennsylvania and the U.S., but in the world. When burned, coal emits more carbon dioxide than any other fossil fuel. C-O-2 is thought to cause climate change with rising sea levels, violent storms and drought. But renewable energy sources only provide about 10% of demand. So, the federal government is investing heavily in a process that burns coal but reduces C-O-2 emissions. DUQ's Charlee Song looks at Carbon Capture and Sequestration. LISTEN [mp3]
