Do those blasted "clean coal" ads make you puke, too!!!???
I can't freakin' believe it on DU... There must be some kind of protest that can be made -- some kind of filter on the ads...

And to use Obama's misguided speech in Pennsylvana and take his words out of context to push this SHIT just makes the PUKE FLOW HARDER!!!

WTF do you have to have ads for in the first place. Hell, the Dems came up with more money than the pukes last election...

-------------------------------------

For anyone who believes this crap...

THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS CLEAN COAL!

THERE AIN'T ENOUGH STORAGE SPACE FOR THE CO2 EVEN IF THEY SPENT THE TRILLIONS OF $$$$$ TO SCRUB IT OUT OF THE PROCESS!!!

TOTAL BULLSHIT!!!!

1. What are these "ads" you speak of?
I do not see such things. These things, "ads", you call them?

It seems like every time I visit DU I get one in the face on the lobby and main pages -- up toward the top.

Admittedly I don't visit often any more -- I keep getting shitcanned for dissing the Israeli 'government' and there seem to be WAY too many blue-dogs here.

It wasn't so back in the early days...


(DAMN, right after posting this -- another of the little bastards popped up!)

3. If I log out I'll see them, or if I open a different browser.
I'm glad you haven't left altogether over past grief and the I/P issue on this board.

It is, after all, a privately managed discussion board, not a democracy. It's pretty fair but in the end it's a private enterprise with a right to be biased.

:hi:

7. At first I thought you were talking about the ones on TV
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GehK7Q_QxPc&eurl=http://...

That ad makes me :puke: every time it airs - and it's alot!

I'm so sorry O said this but am even sorrier that the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity took his words and used them for their PRO-coal ads.

:mad:

8. "Clean Coal" is as real as "Safe Sex"
To be literally accurate, both terms should be altered thusly.

Cleaner coal

Safer sex

10. Sorry guys
Obama created this, its called politics, at campaign events the clean coal guys were always there handing out T-shirts and we were never told to make them leave. Clarification was received on the matter from the state party. Obama's misguided remarks were not misguided remarks...he knew what he was saying.

11. Using Clean Coal technology does reduce emissions
Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 12:10 PM by Geek_Girl
Granted it doesn't eliminate emissions completely but it does reduce emissions.

I contract for a major Power utility company and basically it works like this:


Nuclear Power generates the greatest amount of mega watts, then coal fire plants, then hydro, then ct's and pump storage then wind turbines ect....

If you want to eliminate coal plants and nuclear plants, turn off your computer throw it in the dumpster along with all your other electrical appliances and live in the dark. Then get all of your friends and relatives to do the same then get all their friends and relatives to do the same and ect.. Then maybe you can get get rid of coal and nuke plants.

12. sounds like that scene from "the china syndrome" when an engineer,
upset with an anti-nuclear protester, tells her to stop using her blow-dryer.
