10 Reasons Clean Coal Is Offensive
According to the Washington Examiner yesterday, President Obama's campaign team is going "on the offensive to promote [the President's] support for clean coal".
I am not sure if the article is using "offensive" in the appropriate way when it comes to talking about clean coal. Clean coal is nothing more than a made up marketing phrase that author Jeff Goodell best described:
"Clean coal" is not an actual invention, a physical thing -- it is an advertising slogan. Like "fat-free donuts" or "interest-free loans."
It is PR spin not based in reality and President Obama and his campaign team are playing a part in trying to dupe the public again, much like they did in the 2008 election cycle. Coal is far from clean and no amount of spin or wordsmithing is going to change that.
