Storing CO2 And Carbon Credits On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, concerns over CO2 build up in the atmosphere causing climate change have people asking where to store that CO2 so it doesn’t cause problems. But not everyone agrees with storing it back underground. Eric Douglas has the story.

Also, in this show, forests can help fight climate change by storing planet-warming carbon. That’s the basic premise behind carbon credits – where companies can buy offsets for their pollution from organizations or landowners that maintain woodlands. The Allegheny Front’s Kara Holsopple reports on one program that started in Pennsylvania and sells carbon credits on behalf of smaller family forest owners.
