There are several terms related to Carbon Capture and Storage/Sequestration (CCS). I like carbon pipeline resistance. It reminds me of the Keystone Pledge of Resistance that I was deeply involved with when in Indianapolis. A campaign that, after years of work nationally, defeated the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Also, that is the name of a coalition I belong to, Iowa Carbon Pipeline Resistance.
A summary I wrote about carbon pipelines can be found here: https://landbackfriends.com/2021/12/04/carbon-capture-in-iowa/
On July 12, 2022, I was at the Iowa Utilities Board meeting where many people spoke against carbon pipelines in Iowa.
The best overview about carbon capture I’ve found is the following webinar hosted by my friends Mahmud Fitil and Sikowis Nobiss.
Mahmud and Sikowis organized a gathering at the offices of Summit Carbon Solutions in Ames. Following are some of the photos I took there.
