    which is to say, carbon sequestration facilities where CO2 is scrubbed from the flue gas at a power plant, and then deep well injected.  So demonstration facilities were in fact constructed. The problem is that they are so energy intensive that the additional power to operate them ends up generating even more CO2 than they are injecting.  In other words, they mechanically work, but they don't achieve the desired goal of net reductions in CO2 emissions.

    Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!
