Clean Coal just got Burned

Clean Coal just got Burned

There are more reasons every day to phase out and regulate coal.  The coal industry has gotten a lot of much deserved negative press ever since the coal slurry dam disaster that happened a month ago.  This brought to light that, maybe we should regulate our coal ash.  Of course, no amount of regulation will ever make \”clean coal\” a reality, especially considering that it’s extraction often involves the very destructive mountain top removal.  Oh..and coal is getting more expensive.  Plus..it smells…sorry I don’t have link for that.

Here’s a link to a good editorial by the NY Times on the collapse of clean coal
