Both engineering approaches and political approaches are crucial if CCS is ever to become a technically functioning option. But both tend to reduce CCS to a mere technical or political problem. Carbon capture is afflicted with an increasing complexity and I argue that it cannot be understood or even explained in a single way. If a new e. g. technology shall be implemented you have to make sure that you will not encounter resistance. A various number of theories offer good examples and ways to inform or even involve the public into implementation processes. Again and again it gets visible that the ‘general public’ is more than a homogenous crew, where decision processes can calculate by means of graphics. The general public needs more than just information. Various implementation processes demonstrate that new technologies can collapse without public benefit.
