SubjectPls say no to carbon capture and

Thank you so much for all the work you've done on what is overall an excellent plan. However, I think it is a mistake to rely on future emissions limitations based on carbon capture and storage. Despite Decades of work on it. Carbon capture is not effective and emissions will continue.  As Found by Mark Jacobson at stanford, Carbon capture overall does not limit pollution, and at best captures about 10% of emissions. Proponents of carbon capture have been working on the technology for decades and this is the best they can do. Further, carbon capture technology will only serve to allow fossil fuel to continue to dominate our fuel sources for decades to come and inevitably the taxpayers will bear the brunt of those costs. Please put the money into more Renewables instead. You can look at this source, to understand all the problems with carbon capture.,to%20research%20from%20Mark%20Z.


Thank you.
