Far be it for me to tell Elon how to spend his amassed wealth, but I can't help but think that if the goal is grid/economy decarbonization that the $100M could be better spent somewhere else..

Can you elaborate, Matt? Some examples of how you think the money could be better spent "if the goal is grid/economy decarbonization"?

I just worry that the focus on carbon capture is a continued excuse to build out and support fossil fuel generation when money may be better spent on building out support for non-fossil technologies-- whether that's building out of renewables/nuclear/other non-carbon generation; HVDC to make clean energy generation more efficiently available; or even go outside of power to something like regenerative agriculture (or I suppose areas that could technically fall under the carbon capture umbrella-- see: all the snarky responses to Musk's pledge of well let's just plant $100M of trees and/or use that money to prevent further deforestation)
