Why is The Alliance concerned about CCS?
The coal, oil, and gas industry touts CCS as a “solution” to climate change. But CCS projects have consistently overpromised and underperformed, when they have not failed completely. CCS benefits the petrochemical and pipeline companies by enabling these industries to keep expanding profits while supposedly offsetting their emissions. What's worse? CCS poses significant environmental, health and safety risks to our communities and will have disproportionate affects on Black and Native communities. A report from May 2021 by the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council concluded that carbon capture storage projects will not benefit communities.
