    ROFL, but in a sad, depressed sort of way.

    Speaking of the oxymoron that is the embodiment of the "clean coal" issue:

    It is worth noting that the TVA has recently tripled spill estimate to 5.4M cubic yards of coal ash...that's over 1 billion gallons...Again, the Exxon spill was only 11 million. This is now being considered as one of the, if not the, worst environmental disaster of it's kind in the US.

    p.s. Given the recent (for lack of a better word) animosity that I've encountered from certain member(s), I am curious just how relevant my contribution to this thread is considered to the subject at hand"?"

    Coal's latest campaign is The Faces Of Coal As you can see, "FACES" is the "Federation for American Coal, Energy and Security".

    It's a supposedly grass roots organization with pictures of it's members doing things that people do because Coal makes them safe and secure.

    Lots of good digging done:

    I suppose next we will hear from a least one of the models speaking out against Coal.

    "Coal is the Right Way" ... painful. I wimped out and stopped it about 30 seconds in. The dogs were whining.

    I couldn't watch the whole video either. But listen to or read the story at top of the post. It's a little worrisome that they're trying to indoctrinate kids.
