canaryI’m not sure if “funny” is the right word here—maybe something more like “tragic”—but here’s a good new website that clears up the fiction of clean coal: It’s worth checking out if you have the stomach for killing the same canary again and again. You’ll see what I mean.

As I am fond of saying, clean coal is like a unicorn: it may be a groovy fantasy but it just doesn’t exist. So everyone should shut up about its “promise.” (That goes for you too, Obama.) The only people who have any business promoting clean coal are the coal lobbyists themselves — and then only because their job descriptions include a line about “hastening the demise of the planet.”

Anyway, go check out the website. It’s better with the sound on.
