Title: "Integrating Technology, Science, Law, Economics, and Politics: Development of Practical Policy for Carbon Capture and Storage"
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) provides a potentially promising approach to mitigating carbon dioxide emissions. However, as with virtually all major new technologies, deployment will require careful consideration of a number of issues – including geology, property rights, transactions costs, politics, and legislative strategy. This discussion will illustrate how multiple fields of study have been integrated to synthesize a practical solution in the United States.
