‘Clean coal’ is an oxymoron
The EPA and the open-minded can see the truth in climate change, and that we should make every effort to save our planet.
The level of CO2 in our atmosphere has gone from 280 to 400 parts per million in my lifetime.
That number had not been above 280 in 400,000 years.
To be completely pollution-free, the CO2 from burning coal would have to be captured and disposed of, and that is expensive and requires a lot of power and equipment.
The effects of climate change are minor now, but the weather changes and possible anarchy 20 years from now won’t be nice.
I’m glad I won’t be here to see it.
What’s sad is it could be prevented.
— Tom Benge, Bettendorf
