In Reply: For the reasons offered in our Commentary, we do not believe that CCS should be considered fully established as part of the solution to the emissions problem. Ms Forbes and colleagues are concerned that we omitted several important sources of information about CCS, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, as well as documents from the EPA and the International Energy Agency. We are aware of these documents, but limitations of Commentaries to no more than 10 references precluded their inclusion. Our intention was to present and document information that might be useful to a medical audience likely not knowledgeable about CCS.
