There is no such thing as "Clean Coal"!

I don't need to say much here. After witnessing the new "Clean Coal" campaign commercials during last nights' debate, I felt I had to post something about it. If you need more info, or don't think this one article is enough, you need not do more than a simple Google search for "clean coal" to discover the abundance of articles written about the topic.

Frome the WashingtonPost article:
Clean coal: Never was there an oxymoron more insidious, or more dangerous to our public health. Invoked as often by the Democratic presidential candidates as by the Republicans and by liberals and conservatives alike, this slogan has blindsided any meaningful progress toward a sustainable energy policy.
