The article discusses a U.S. experimental power plant that siphons off the carbon dioxide (CO2) it generates and sequesters it beneath the Earth's surface. The focus of the article is an advanced-technology coal-fired power plant called FutureGen. Topics include the debate between U.S. environmentalists about shifting to coal-generated electricity and those who cite that the technology is costly and unproven.
