CCS: Great in theory, but in practice?

In theory, carbon capture would allow energy producers to continue to burn fossil fuels while meeting emissions targets. In practice, the technology is expensive and unproven.

CCS captures carbon dioxide emissions from a fossil fuel power plant and then pipes it to an underground storage site such as a depleted gas or oil reservoir.
