The article states that carbon capture and storage needs a legal framework to operate in as well as workable technology. It was cited that the idea of capturing and storing carbon dioxide to stop it reaching the atmosphere was seen as one of the more outlandish ways of trying to fight climate change. That changed as it became clear that a global switch from fossil fuels was not going to happen any time soon. The reverse happened because fast-developing economies in the world's largest countries depend on coal, oil and gas to fuel their growth.
