The article considers the advantages and disadvantages of utilizing carbon capture and storage (CCS) to battle climate change in Great Britain. According to the CCS Association, there are issues of health and safety associated with the process, including the possible migration of carbon to groundwater supplies and the corrosive effects of carbon on plant materials. In terms of advantages, CCS has the potential to become a major industry that can create thousands of jobs.
