      But CCS does nothing for the harmful effects of coal up to the point of burning it. There are lots of problems w/ coal ash, scrubbing the coal, transporting it, etc.

      So, it's really not "clean" even if they capture all of the CO2.

      Plus, it seems that it could be a way to get us not to investigate doing other things. The argument is, "Don't worry about wind, solar, conservation, etc, because in a few years, we'll have clean coal, so keep those lights on!" But it's always a few years away & never actually here.
