Carbon capture & storage: why it’s dividing climate experts
Despite being the world's second-biggest cause of climate change, most projections tell us that oil can be part of a net-zero-emissions future. How so? The answer lies in a technology called Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage - or CCUS. But not everyone agrees that CCUS is a climate solution. This episode hears from both sides of the debate, and whether or not CCUS should be getting favourable treatment in Canada through a proposed investment tax credit.

Guests: Susannah Pierce (President, Shell Canada), Ed Whittingham (Energy vs. Climate Podcast) & Christina Hoicka (Canada Research Chair, UVic)
