    Regarding Weyburn and Dakota Gasification, you have things backward. Weyburn is an oil field, not a power plant. Dakota produces the CO2 as a byproduct of its gas production process and sells it to the owners of the Weyburn oil field to increase output and efficiency

      James,
      You’re right of course – thanks for pointing out the error. I’ll make the correction.

        Dakota Gasification is the plant using coal gasification to sell CO2 to the Weyburn oil field for advanced oil field recovery. Let me know what needs corrected as I believe we have made the correction based James’ comment. Thanks.

      @James Childress: That may be but the coal power plant in Estevan 40 minutes away from Weyburn is trying to utilize CCS.

    Coal=engergy of which we have finite resource. It seems absurd that we are wasting resources to create a system that uses more engery to fix a questionable problem with a questionable solution.
    How about just focusing on making the power plants more efficient. 20% more efficiency means 20% less carbon, and 20% less fuel consumed.

    This issue is so politically charged, that people are not using their own common sense!
    Another solution, is conservation. We in America, take electricty for granted- just like our water and gasoline for our cars.. If we all just focused a little on understanding how and where our resources come from and stop listening to the politicians (from both parties), we might be a lot better off.

    Well I just increased my carbon footprint by being on this webpage, got to go!

    I am doing this for a school project, and it would be helpful if you make the pros and cons into a list and not a paragraph.
