This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. There is no doubt that climate change will happen, the real question is: how much change can we still control? Carbon Capture is a process that removes CO2 from the exhaust gasses of coal or gas fired power plants, to store it in depleted gas or oil reservoirs deep under the ground. This would mitigate CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, without having an impact on our current energy consumption.

Lennart Joos had a Fulbright from Belgium to the US, 2012. Chemical Engineer, University of California, Berkeley. Lennart conducts research on materials that can remove CO2 from exhaust gasses, potentially allowing energy production to continue without harm to the environment. He's also passionate about public education.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
