I have been meaning to share something with the world for several months, but never got around to it. Here is the background. Nearly every weekday morning, I exit the Anacostia Freeway onto East Capital Street and cross the Whitney Young Memorial Bridge. At this time of year, my transit into work has me crossing that bridge just before sunrise.
The Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium (RFK to most DC residents) sits at the west end of the bridge. Because of its size and prominent location, it often hosts large temporary advertisements. On a road network where billboards are rare, those signs stand out. That bridge happens to be a heavily traveled route into the city, so the signs get exposed to a lot of eyeballs.
I took the post leading photo of the sign from a pull-off at the west end of the bridge, so the entire sign is visible, but for most of the trip across the bridge, you cannot really read the words on the left side. They are obscured by a line of streetlights down the center divide of the bridge. This billboard has been hanging on the stadium east side for the past several months. Every time I see it, I kind of chuckle and wonder if the people involved in the review and approval of the ad recognize just how honestly they have portrayed the elusive notion of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). I will leave it at that and hope that you recognize what I am talking about and contribute to a conversation about the sign and CCS technology.
