This investigation by @CrowleyKev and @AkshatRathi ask an urgent question about carbon capture, a tool that climate scientists agree is necessary to slow global warming. This tech already works, oil sector is its main driver, and it can make money. But will the industry invest?
The example of Exxon's stalled carbon capture project in Wyoming suggests that, in a crunch like we're seeing now, oil giants may very well choose to invest in creating more emissions rather than capturing them.
This story continues a @climate investigation into Exxon. We know the company came into 2020, before the pandemic, with plans to invest $210B in projects that would have *raised* annual emissions 17% by 2025. That's based on Exxon planning documents.
