“Clean” coal not a panacea

March 22, 2009

In a column on Friday, Jeff Ball of the Wall Street Journal talks about the Coal Hard Facts: Cleaning It Won’t Be Dirt Cheap.   It seems right on.  Of course, this doesn’t even address the impact of mining itself that I raised in an earlier post.

Minor and even major tweaks on the energy supply side won’t save us.   The economy and the environment require that energy-efficiency be a cornerstone of our solution.   Fortunately, efficiency allows us to save money AND get the other benefits we need.   What’s not to like about that!

Thanks,
Mike
