Wyoming has invested millions of dollars in projects to capture, transport and store CO2 as a solution to keep Wyoming’s economy going while avoiding catastrophic impacts from climate change legislation.
Wyoming hopes to reach zero emissions while simultaneously continuing coal, oil and gas production. Many environmental groups, as well as the United Nations, support carbon capture as a critical measure to reduce atmospheric CO2. A bipartisan infrastructure bill is moving through the House and includes billions of dollars to capture carbon emissions, the largest-ever federal investment in such technology.
