Clean Coal is a Lie...

The Waterkeepers Alliance unveiled their site last week, Dirty Lie - exposing the truths about the destructiveness of coal and it's entire life cycle—from mining to transportation to scrubbing to burning to waste storage. After reading, if you had previously bought into the $40M 'clean coal' campaign, you will quickly be disuaded of that oximoron and realize that everything about the use of coal is inherently dirty. The truth is that coal pollutes our water, communities, forests and mountains, kills wildlife and contributes to climate change, in addition to poisoning our drinking water and our fish with mercury and other toxins.
