Wow Freddy, I think it's time you went and touched the monolith. The coal plant that powers my house emits zero pollutants because of modern technology. If you think CO2 is a polluntant then you need to stuff a sock in your breather. oh and btw, they can cure cancer.

I see signs like this in Pittsburgh at bus stops and I always want to cover it with print outs of facts on how coal isn't clean or just write lies over it really big.

I think coal is clean in that new plants will only spew CO2 and water. And CO2 isn't _technically_ a pollutant. From the right perspective, it's "plant food". Oh yeah, and it contributes to global warming.

You can make a case that if the energy is used to power an electric car that replaces a gasoline engine, then it has helped reduce the overall pollution.

I think it's neat you are making fun of somebody for making a terrible comparison and to show you're point you make an equal or worse comparison.

Wow Stevo, you're a complete moron. Show me ONE valid, credible source that shows a way to have green coal. It can't be done. If you burn a fuel, there will be emmissions. Comparing that to an iPad makes as much sense as comparing politics to medicine. It's like saying "They can pass a law to give health care to everyone but they can't cure cancer?"

Go back to watching the grass grow genius.

I don't think that's a good investment though, IDK. I have NO idea how much coal you got over there..

You can't have your cake and eat it too people if you want to get rid of our dependence on oil this is one of the most viable options. The US has the largest coal reserve in the world and they've done alot to make it cleaner and are still making advances.

Stevo63; yeah, but the issue is always at what cost? Using CCS to make coal cleaner is massively uneconomical at the moment. It can be done, but whether it should or not is another matter...

Those who think coal is dirty are ignorant. What, they can make a Ipad that can practically wipe your ass for you, but, they can't filter fuel emissions? Get a clue people.

Perhaps they're using a Carbon Capture and Storage plant? That reduces emissions by over 85%... though it does incidentally reduce the efficiency of the plant still further meaning you have to burn more coal per unit of electricity produced.

It greatly depends on what type of coal is being burned and what actions are being taken to control the power plant emissions after the burn.

Everyone pictures black smog from burning coal but it just isn't always the case. PA is known for a lot of anthracite coal which is a hard coal type and it burns virtually smokeless. many of the amish communities in PA use this type of coal for heat.

"well i would say "sort of clean coal if you tilt your head to the side, squint your eyes real hard, and hold your breath""

Total win!
