The global challenge of achieving the major reductions in CO2 emissions necessary to mitigate climate change cannot be overstated. It will require a wide range of strategic actions, including end-use energy efficiency, changing public attitudes and behaviour to reduce demand and increasing the use of renewable energy sources and nuclear power. Despite the increased deployment of the latter over the next few decades, to meet the world's growing energy needs it will be necessary to continue to use fossil fuels well into the second half of the century. We must therefore capture as much as possible of the CO2 released in their production and use (for power generation, industrial processes, etc.) and store it in suitable underground locations - so-called carbon capture and storage (or sequestration) (CCS).
