What is CCS all about? Why is the UK offering to become a world leader in CCS implementation and legislation? What are other countries doing in this field?

Jen Roberts from the University of Edinburgh gave a fascinating talk on how carbon dioxide can be captured and stored underground to reduce our CO2 emissions. She examined the risks involved and how it could delay global warming.
