This power plant has cracked carbon capture

Carbon capture probably gets the least respect of any technology proposed to slow climate change. The basic idea—trapping emissions from fossil fuel-power plants before they’re released into the atmosphere—seems sound. But attempts to build carbon-capturing plants have all run into the same problem: the process makes the plant less efficient, and thus more expensive to operate.
