Energy Secretary: Natgas will need CCS to be more than a short-term climate tool

As I've argued over and over (and over),  if natural gas is to have more than a short-term role in combating global climate disruption, it must be coupled with carbon capture and storage technology.  There is a huge opportunity in that union for the natgas industry - to make natgas a near-zero carbon form of energy.  

Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz agrees.  He said this week, “Eventually, if we are going to get down to really low-carbon emissions, natural gas, just like coal, would need to have carbon capture.”

With many hurdles for CCS to overcome, what will it take - besides political will - to get there?
