Carbon Capture and Storage – too expensive to save humanity?

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) can be practised in two ways, naturally and mechanically. The natural approach is much about planting additional trees[1], algae in the sea[2] or even the most giant creatures on earth, whales, contribute to natural CCS by consuming massive amounts of carbon within their lifespan of up to a century[3].  The mechanical procedure mainly focusses on capturing waste CO2 from abundant point sources, such as cement factories or biomass power plants (for more detailed information on biomass check out our blog post Biomass – Renewable Energy by burning our forests?).
