David Keith is the director of the Energy and Environmental Systems Group in the Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment and Economy at the University of Calgary. He works on carbon capture and storage. His homepage says:

David W. Keith has worked near the interface between climate science, energy technology and public policy for twenty years. His work in technology and policy assessment has centered on the capture and storage of CO2 (click here), the technology and implications of global climate engineering (click here), the economics and climatic impacts of large-scale wind power and, most recently, the land footprint of energy technologies. As a technology developer and innovator, David has built a high-accuracy infrared spectrometer for NASA’s ER-2 and developed new methods for reservoir engineering to increase the safety of stored CO2. Since 2009 David has led Carbon Engineering Ltd., a start-up company developing technology to capture CO2 from ambient air at an industrial scale.
