ABSTRACT
The article provides answers to the myths surrounding climate change. It is mentioned that the world is changing and consumers and governments are pressured to respond to this global threat. Myths that are mentioned include increase in plant sales in order to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) and that clean coal technology will fix things up. Possibility of increased plant sales happening in order to reduce CO2 and the use of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) at the source of emission is mentioned.
