need to sort out carbon capture before any new coal stations can be built.
Many people think it is not feasable.

Nuke is the only way forward and we may be to late with that.

There was an interesting demonstration recently on the practicalities of CC.
The demonstrator whilst not denying the technicalities of the technique said - holding a piece of coal in her hand- turn this lump into gas and it increases its volume by xxxx%- there simply will not be enough underground capacity to keep it all safe.

"Many people think it is not feasable."

And yet a pilot project seems to be working perfectly well, with major funding available to develop the idea.

Carbon capture and storage: it's the race no one wants to win.

But the same link says that "other companies such as Ayrshire Power have decided to go ahead with their own CCS plant,"

The race which you refer to seems to be simply a race to get some public funds.
