From Click Green we are told:-
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council(EPSRC) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change(DECC) today announced a £13 million investment to establish a UK Carbon Capture and Storage(CCS) Research Centre.
But burying CO2 is beyond parody, beyond stupid, beyond mere funding greed and the infinitely tedious grinding monster of a stupidity machine tended with fanatical devotion by the mad and the bad.
This is a symptom of insanity. The insane are defined by their behaviour, by the way they deviate from rational norms clearly visible to all but the afflicted . One is inevitably reminded of Swift's The Grand Academy of Lagado. Although burying CO2, which after all is much the same as burying our own breath - well that has to be a little more outré than trying to extract sunbeams from cucumbers.
