ISRAEL - Leader in Carbon Capture Technology

Arno Froese

Earlier this year, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change made clear that carbon removal is essential if the world is to meet the Paris Agreement’s climate goals of keeping global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit), compared with pre-industrial times, and if governments and companies are to meet their low or net-zero pledges.

Technologies for carbon capture and storage, also known as sequestration, are at an early stage worldwide. But interest in the field is growing. According to veteran environmental activist Maya Jacobs, one of [the] conference organizers, more than 20 Israeli companies are involved in different aspects of carbon sequestration at this time.

The Foreign Ministry’s climate envoy, Gideon Behar, said the conference was aimed at kickstarting a carbon sequestration community in Israel, which would help the authorities to understand the great need and huge opportunities in the field.

“The carbon fixation that was presented at the conference is still in its infancy and there is still no proven and commercial technology in the world for long-term fixation of large volumes of greenhouse gases,” said the Environment Protection Ministry.

“We continue to work closely with the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Economy, and the Ministry of Finance, to promote grants for pilots in this area in order to help young companies experiment with their prototypes in an applied, real-world scenario.”

Arno's Commentary

That Israel is recognized as one of the global leaders relating to carbon capture technology is not surprising, but expected. Now the question: will the world be successful in their aim; in this case, carbon capture? We think so. Why? There is virtually no country that disagrees with the temporarily established fact that global warming is increasing. However, other voices indicate that it is not necessarily true. Our developed, industrial world is not exclusively responsible for global warming. A statement by the Global CCS Institute alarmingly states, “However, no nation, including the leaders, have yet established the conditions necessary to drive deployment at the rate required to meet ambition climate targets. It is clear that more must be done.”

Of interest is another article by the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, which states, “Palm leaves found fossilized in the rocks bordering the Malaspina Glacier near Yakutat have a story to tell since palms could not possibly grow there today. Either the climate of the Earth was different when the palms grew 45 million years ago or else the rocks in which the fossils occur moved in from someplace else. Most students of the past subscribe to the latter view.” These statements are standard by evolutionists—just throw in a few million, even billions of years, and you have your answer. Not so: humanity has no reliable data beyond 6,000+ years.

Moreover, floods have been recorded throughout Europe dating back 500, 800, and 1,000 years. During those days, there was no such thing as industry. Do we have any evidence of temperature change 100, 500, or 1,000 years ago? Virtually none. Our conclusion is that the world will continue to exist, just as it did in the beginning. However, mankind will be able to at least interfere—to a certain degree—when it comes to global climate change. That will contribute to man’s independence from God the Creator, resulting in him finally worshiping what is reported in Scripture: “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4).
