Clean Power Plants Directly Over CO2 DISPOSAL WELLS Speeds Up Decarbonization and Drives Down Cost
Electricity Transmission Lines, Not Long-to-Build, Costly CO2 Pipelines Is The Way To Quickly Decarbonize and Repair the Air.

The United States' Carbon Capture and Storage Situation:
"The United States has the technological potential to offset roughly only a decade’s worth of its current CO2 emissions through biological sequestration (i.e., planting trees, etc.,) but a few hundred years’ worth of emissions through carbon dioxide capture and sequestration." - from Congressional Budget Office "The Potential for Carbon Sequestration in the United States, 2007" - Summary, page 2.

There is about 4 centuries of fossil fuel at the current burn rate on Planet Earth. It is estimated there is underground storage space for several times Planet Earth's carbon dioxide.
Far more than is needed to bury all of Climate Change's CO

If water is added to the liquid CO2 as it is pumped into the ground, the CO2 will turn into limestone [carbonate] after a few years. This locks the CO2 underground forever.

Locations without carbon disposal will have to rely on renewables - wind, solar - for their electricity.

Bottom Line: Carbon Capturing Power Plants for rolling back Climate Change can be located over CO2 storage zones almost anywhere in the world and connected to electrical grids.
