CCUS Options for Coal Plant Conversion
No one in history has ever won a purely defensive war. Even with no U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulatory constraints, coal industries must deploy their Spreadsheet Army of generation planners and CFOs to aggressively address the problems of shrinking demand, the high cost of upgrade money, unavailability of engaged and adequately trained employees, the destabilizing financial impact of disruptive technological innovation and the rising cost of maintaining older equipment if coal is to survive as an industry.

The IPCC May Have Outlived its Usefulness – An Interview with Judith Curry

Coalblog readers – We have reprinted (with permission) a recent interview with Dr. Judith Curry, a climate scientist Professor and Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Curry provides a unique view of the discussion of climate change and offers the opinion (among others in this interview) that the IPCC may have outlived its usefulness.

I would be interested in your thoughts and comments. Let me know what you think of Dr. Curry’s views on the state of climate science and policy today.
