What is carbon capture and storage, why will it be a hot topic at COP28, and how can journalists cover it better? Join DeSmog editors and reporters to find out!

Matthew Green, global investigations editor, will moderate a lively discussion and Q&A with Michael Buchsbaum, an energy journalist with decades of experience covering CCS, and Geoff Dembicki, author of The Petroleum Papers. The panelists will help journalists understand CCS — from what it is to why fossil fuel companies are so keen on it to its dubious track record — and will share their top tips for avoiding pitfalls and misleading fossil fuel industry narratives when covering carbon management schemes.
