The biggest key to stopping climate change is limiting the amount of harmful gases that enter the atmosphere. This, however, will take time as changes are made to what energies we use, how we produce things, etc. In the meantime, the Acorn Project wants to keep the gases from getting into the air and, good news, it’s looking to start testing it’s technology by the mid-2020s.
The Acorn Project is a carbon capture and storage plan. In effect, the system would capture the carbon and store it in sites under the North Sea. In theory this would help to stall climate change as the gases would not be released into the atmosphere, though they would still exist. It’s a band-aid but one that would hopefully allow for more time to solve the real problem.
This experiment will be taking place in Scotland and use existing pipelines. Check out the article for more information.
