More On Sequestration and Montana

I just finished Chapter seven of “Our Choice”, Gore’s spin on Carbon Capture and Sequestration. Gore reviewed large sequestration projects throughout the world and he did not mention Montana, although I know this town’s university, Montana State University, got a 63 million dollar grant for some aspect of Carbon Sequestration. They got their grant from the Department of Energy and it made the front page of the local paper.I know of at least two projects where sequestration of carbon dioxide is a process that is being proposed in Montana…interestingly enough Gore is somewhat optimistic about the potential for this process but he says in his book, at some legth, that carbon sequestration has promise. I very much agree with Gore but I do not want to see carbon sequestration become the format for developing a dirty coal resource. We have a lot of coal in Montana.
