Clean Coal, Hard Cash

AP released a brief article this morning outlining the real emphasis behind the push for “Clean Coal“. Governor Brian Schweitzer, in Bismarck on Tuesday for an energy seminar said, “clean coal technology could help generate billions of dollars for his state and North Dakota.

Therein is revealed the real purpose behind our support for “Clean Coal“. It will generate billions of taxpayer dollars to fluff up the coffers of states and corporations by funding giagantic carbon sequestration pilot projects. Nobody really cares whether the technology is actually feasible or whether the projects eventually prove out. The significant achievement is that they will bring massive amounts of revenue to coal-producing states, thereby assuring continued support for climate legislation, or at least cooperative silence.
