Sierra Club Tells The Truth About Coal
Posted by Dan Satterfield
If you are the company hire stop make the dirtiest form of energy look good, how do you do it? You Just put the word CLEAN in front of the product. You cannot watch cable news these days for long without seeing some program sponsored by “clean coal”.
The science says otherwise. There is no such thing as clean coal. Is it possible? Perhaps someday, but it appears the cost will be more expensive than renewable energy like wind and solar. I have posted about this before, but now the Sierra Club has decided it’s time to call the coal folks on it.
You have to almost feel for the ad agency for the coal companies. Remember the lumps of coal singing Christmas carols?
