    •  Under the broad umbrella (0+ / 0-)

      of "financing" I was also interested in issues like how much each "tree" cost, how much it cost to sequester each tonne (or whatever unit) of carbon, and so on.

      The technology is really cool for sure, but I have a pretty strong gut feeling that way more bang for the buck could be had using other strategies . . .

      •  that's what the talk about (1+ / 0-)

        Cost per Ton -- is all about,

        the price to capture the carbon and store it.


        I was reading that

        a "Cap and Trade" allotment Fee

        would probably accomplish the same thing,

        at less than $25 per Ton.


        But first you have to make  "Cap and Trade" acceptable,
        politically and socially.

        If nothing else CCS Cost per Ton
        provide a Baseline for the "Cap and Trade" rationale.

        There IS a reason why there needs to be Carbon Costs/Fees.

          direct tax on carbon emmissions than "Cap & Trade"

          The very idea that financial markets - which seem to be beyond the reach of any government on earth - are going to be a big part of the solution strikes me as mightily far-fetched . . . .
