With New Legislation, Kerry Pushes Carbon Sequestration Technology

Senator John Kerry, chair of the Commerce Subcommittee on Science, Technology and Innovation today held a hearing on carbon sequestration, and introduced a bill to help develop a new generation of this most promising environmentally friendly technology.


"If the United States continues to turn a blind eye to dangerous emissions, we will be forced to climb an even steeper hill in battling global climate change," said Senator John Kerry. "Carbon capture and storage technologies hold enormous potential to reduce our emissions as we power our economy. This legislation and today's hearing offer a chance to embrace smart solutions the American way: by harnessing technology to help combat the climate change threat."
