Alberta Carbon sequester is BS!

The Weyburn CO2 Monitoring and Storage Project is funded by several international energy companies, the U.S. and Canadian governments, and the European Union.

The main concern is whether the CO2 will stay in place.

Good information on how this works can be found here

Stelmach’s program is no program at all; same as usual. Why would you put carbon dioxide into salt caverns for storage when you could pump it into the strata to scrub the older oil fields? This crew are all about flushing more money into buddies pockets and are after the publicity and don’t give a dam about the environment.

This whole program is about what is basically wrong with these guys!. There is no public disclosure of who gets what for a contact nor are there details of process. Bids are asked for but reesults are never revealed. Only the Governments “selected” winner gets the headline and no bid results are published nor are bidders advised of the details. The Government knows who they are going to give the contracts to before the bid is let. Why even bother going through the expense of bidding?

Cost plus contacts given out at every level with no due process! Pipelines, power line construction; you name it. Effectively this Government takes no responsibility for anything they do! They are at best, totally irresponsible. Always some one else’s fault and cost over runs are paid without a blink. And at the end of the day, no guarantees on anything.
