Tell President-elect Obama: We Need Clean Energy, Not 'Clean Coal'

2 posts in this topic

During the presidential campaign, both Senators Obama and McCain touted their support for "clean coal". But they were both missing the point: Conventional coal-burning power plants are the leading cause of global warming pollution in the United States. "Clean Coal" is a myth--a contradiction in terms. Coal companies claim they can develop coal plants at some point in the distant future that will capture and sequester carbon pollution. But carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is unproven and exorbitantly expensive.

We need real solutions, not coal industry myths. Use the form below to send a message to President-elect Obama: We need clean, green energy now!

The concept of clean coal is said to be a solution to climate change and global warming by coal industry groups, while environmental groups maintain that it is greenwash, a public relations tactic that presents coal as having the potential to be an environmentally acceptable option. Greenpeace is a major opponent of the concept because emissions and wastes are not avoided, but are transferred from one waste stream to another
