S. 1502 would establish a program managed by the Department of Energy to create a trust fund to ensure prompt compensation for any damages from the geologic storage of carbon dioxide.

Australia and other nations rich in solar resources should invest in concentrating solar thermal (CST), a key low-carbon technology.
As biofuel production ramps up, counting all the associated greenhouse gas impacts is critical to good energy and climate policy.
Recent global action to fund carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is unprecedented. (Update: U.S. FutureGen Project revived.)
A consensus is emerging on technology transfer in an international climate agreement, though sticking points remain.
This graphic illustrates both areas of emerging consensus and sticking points among key players involved in enhanced international action on technology development and deployment.
Key among the con
Coming to Agreement on Technology in the Countdown to Copenhagen
Technology is one of the four “pillars” of a post-
2012 climate policy laid out in the Bali Action Plan
(BAP). In practice a multilateral climate agreement
will not be the primary driver of clean technology
development, deployment, and transfer. But given
Globally, solar resources are abundant. Solar resources in Australia, Mexico, the Middle East, and southern and northern Africa are especially promising.
Reducing Emissions with Concentrating Solar Thermal Power
This report examines Concentrating Solar Thermal power (CST), a renewable energy resource that presents policy-makers and investors with a significant potential for reducing carbon dioxide emissions from the power sector.
