Farcicological Dig

“All this nonsense is a substitute for a simple proposition: stop digging. There is only one form of carbon capture and storage that is scientifically proven, and which can be deployed immediately: leaving fossil fuels in the ground.” (https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/sep/27/fracking-digging-drilling-paris-agreement-fossil-fuels)

Hands up those government politicians who want to stop digging. You’ll have to stretch so I can see you above that hole you all seem to be in.


“Prof Stuart Haszeldine, director of Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage, said: “Boundary Dam [in Saskatchewan, Canada] is working proof for naysayers, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, that full-scale CCS on power generation now exists and works commercially to deliver electricity, with no subsidy.” He claimed the plant’s opening would “create ripples worldwide.”” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/oct/01/canada-switches-on-worlds-first-carbon-capture-power-plant)

A dam holding gigagallons of tonic water would create a few ripples.
