Inside the world's largest carbon capture storage facility (part 1)
By Kristen Espeland-Gourley
Louisville, KY – Tuesday the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works held a mark up session on the Seante climate change bill "The Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act."

In the first of this two part series on Carbon Capture and Storage, Kentucky Public Radio's Kristen Espeland-Gourley visits an Ohio River Valley power plant that's flipped the switch on a world first.
