  •  "Clean Coal" (4+ / 0-)

    Possibly the only phrase that's a greater contradiction in terms than "compassionate conservative." According to U.S. PIRG:

    The vast majority of proposed plants use traditional coal-burning technology, which emits massive amounts of carbon dioxide. Only 16 percent of the proposed plants would use coal gasification technology and could someday be equipped to capture and store carbon dioxide. Even these plants would require costly future upgrades to avoid large releases of global warming pollutants.
