"Clean Coal" Is A Farce

You know those "Clean Coal" ads that feature a bunch of actors pretending to be patriotic Americans looking into the camera and saying "I Believe"?

Well, the coal industry sure spent a ton of money on the ads promoting Clean Coal, and the investment seems to have paid off. Both Presidential candidates support Clean Coal, and Barack Obama even praised Clean Coal in his acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention.

There's just one little problem.

Clean Coal doesn't exist, and it never will. Coal is dirty, new coal plants are expensive and coal mining devastates God's Creation without contributing much of anything to the economy.

We just published an article at Matador in which my good friend Josh Kearns exposes the myth of Clean Coal. Please read it and share it with your friends.

I don't care how much money the coal lobby spends on ads or how much money they donate to political campaigns - the truth will always emerge.
