Iowa has two new pipeline proposals. Both are centered around Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). The lines would carry captured carbon from ethanol plants. CCS is very complicated but when you boil it down, the basic premise is that it captures the carbon and stores it underground (CCS) or it captures the carbon and uses it for industrial purposes. The two pipelines in Iowa are being offered as false climate solutions as they will be utilized for enhanced oil recovery and extending the life of coal-fired power plants. We already know the solutions to our climate crisis - we must end our dependence on fossil fuels and invest in solar, wind, storage, conservation and efficiency!
