The article discusses a report by Mcllvaine Group, which states that a combination of coal and biomass for power generation with carbon dioxide capture capability represents an effective method for curtailing carbon emissions. Mcllvaine says the best global-warming reducer would be a 100 percent biomass boiler with 90 percent carbon dioxide capture, yet the company acknowledges there is not enough biomass to meet the world's electricity needs in this fashion.
