    OHIO SEQUESTRATION: STILL TESTING

    So many political leaders talk about carbon capture and sequestration like it’s a sure solution to all our global warming anxieties but here is yet another news story PROVING the technology is UNPROVEN! Maybe a little more attention to wind turbines and concentrating solar stations wouldn't be such a bad idea.

    Well Ready For Testing Of Carbon Injection
    April 25, 2007 (UPI)

    WHO

    WHAT
    An 8000 ft well into Appalachian Basin deep saline formations, now complete, will be the site of CO2 geologic sequestration feasibility testing.

    WHEN
    Set to begin.

    WHERE
    FirstEnergy's R.E. Burger Plant, Shadyside, Ohio.

    WHY
    Political leaders of all stripes are anxiously pushing to prove this technology. Before CO2 injection, the geologic formation will assessed. If approved, gas will be injected and affects carefully studied. Other field tests are on-going. The Michigan Basin geologic area and the Cincinnati Arch area, among 20 others, are being studied.

    QUOTES
    Acting Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy Tom Shope: "By assessing carbon storage in an area of the country that produces 20 percent of the nation's electricity, the test helps pave the way toward a future in which America's abundant fossil resources can be used to produce energy without contributing to global climate change…"
