Wind & Solar Aren't Alternative Energy Anymore - CleanTechnica

Fossil fuel generation is not carbon neutral and never will be. Methane gas generation emits on average 480 g CO2e per KWH and coal is worse at around 1.1 kg CO2e per KWH. To achieve carbon neutrality, each fossil generation plant would have to capture all of the carbon, ship the carbon to physically different sites, and sequester it. This would add 16.8 to 19.6 cents per kWh to the cost of these forms of generation per analysis based on numbers from organizations promoting CCS. In addition, enhanced oil recovery is the only form of sequestration with significant economic value and high volume, so sequestration by definition would be used to produce more fossil fuels, which is not a net benefit.
