The Toll from Coal: An Updated Assessment of Death and Disease from America’s Dirtiest Energy Source
Among all industrial sources of air pollution, none poses greater risks to human health and the environment than coal-fired power plants.
Perspectives on Monitoring of Saline and EOR Geologic Carbon Injection and Sequestration Sites
Geologic carbon sequestration offers both the potential to provide a permanent sink for industrial CO2 emissions, and added value to tertiary enhanced oil and gas recovery (EOR). Subsurface injection of carbon dioxide is a proven technology developed in the EOR industry over the past three decades. However, EOR efforts have…

Technical Support Document for the Powerplant Impact Estimator Software Tool
The purpose of this report is to describe a software application, the Powerplant Impact Estimator (PIE), developed to estimate the health and economic of electric generating units (EGUs) in the United States.
The Carbon Capture and Storage Imperative: Recommendations to the Obama Administration’s Interagency Carbon Capture and Storage Task Force
This report summarizes CATF’s recommendations to the Obama Administration’s Interagency Carbon Capture and Storage Task Force. The report draws upon CATF’s experience working with developers of CCS projects in the US and China, review of state and federal incentive programs, R & D needs, and coal fleet modeling in the…
Review of the Manomet Biomass Sustainability and Carbon Policy Study
Four Policy Principles for Energy Innovation & Climate Change: A Synthesis
There is now little doubt that reducing global carbon dioxide emissions to address climate change at a societally acceptable cost will require substantial innovation in energy systems and technologies over the coming decades. We do not appear to be on that innovation path, however. Over the last two years, several…
