"As far as coal goes, as long as it's clean burning, the only by-products are carbon dioxide and water. What's that... two things plants need to survive? No way! The only problems I have with clean coal are the ways that it is collected."

do you know about mountain top removal?

As long as it's clean burning?????

Coal Ash Is More Radioactive than Nuclear Waste

Environmental impacts of coal power:
air pollution (Union of Concerned Scientists)

There is absolutely no such thing as clean burning coal. Please stop believing the total and complete BS that is being pushed by the coal industry.

If you like I can give you mountains upon mountains of information that further proves this point.
