Gag Me with Clean Coal Destroy life, property, mountains, streams, rivers, families, communities and the planet to obtain a filthy fossil fuel. Burn it for electricity, releasing myriad poisons.

Add alliteration and a multi-million dollar PR campaign. Voila, you have clean coal.

President Obama Must Heed Alarm Bells on Global Warming If this were an ordinary issue incremental, politically palatable steps made over the long term may be appropriate. But gentle approaches don't make sense when our survival on this planet may depend on a swift, dramatic response.
