  •  Tell that to coal mining communities. (2+ / 0-)

    Tell it to the people whose water supplies are poisoned with heavy metals and carcinogens. Tell it to Appalachia, where mountaintop removal is America's most shameful environmental crime of the century. No, there's no such thing as clean coal.

    Coal carbon sequestration is the most expensive way of dealing with CO2 emissions. There's a reason no one in industry wants to invest private dollars in building new plants. There's a reason the few that have been built resulted in huge rate increases. It's a completely moronic non-solution. It makes no environmental or economic sense whatsoever.
