The North Dakota Industrial Commission Fails to Keep Pace with Scientific Advancements

Many politicians seem to lack understanding of science, as highlighted by Harvard Professor Naomi Oreskes in the March 2024 issue of Scientific American. In her article on “The False Promise of Carbon Capture,” Oreskes explores the process of carbon capture and concludes that the yearly costs could amount to $6 trillion to capture the annual U.S. output of CO2. This staggering cost could have significant impacts on oil and gas prices and could ultimately be borne by taxpayers.

When considering such complex scientific issues, it is important to prioritize factual information over propaganda designed to sway public opinion. While not all statements regarding carbon capture may be entirely accurate, relying on evidence-based science is crucial in making informed decisions. Unfortunately, entities like North Dakota’s Industrial Commission appear to be disregarding scientific knowledge in their decision-making processes.
