Clean Coal

In the United States, clean coal is any technology that may mitigate emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gasses that arise from the burning of coal for electrical power.

Moody's Analytics in a February and August forecast stated that continuing with the present policies of the Obama Administration during the next 4 years (from 2013 to 2017) 12 million jobs will be created. Macroeconomic Advisers in April predicted 12.3 million jobs during the same time period under Obama . and even the the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has predicted 9 + million jobs . and that is after inserting the potential damage from Republican partisanship allowing America to go over the financial cliff in January of 2013. IT seems interesting that Romney/Ryan keep running around on the campaign trail proudly announcing that their plan will create 12 million new jobs in the next 4 years . are they planning to keep Obama and his staff in place? It just another example of making all these claims while offering not one iota of evidence as to how they will accomplish anything. How about the Romney/Ryan 5 Point Plan we keep hearing about ... 1.

We have foreign countries with drilling rigs sitting off our coast angle drilling into our reserves while we do nothing. This has to stop. We need to increase off-shore drilling. The drilling site proposed on ANWAR in Alaska, which has been held up for years, would be in proportion to placing a postage stamp on a football field. We need to drill for oil in ANWAR. We haven't built a nuclear power plant in almost 40 years. We haven't built a new oil refinery in over 35 years.

I know all about this, because my Dad was from the heart of West Virginia Coal Country. So I can tell you from firsthand account. I have BEEN TO, "Clean Coal Country"!!! It is just a lame-assed "industry P.R. term" for the current style of "Mountain-topping/Strip" Mining. They basically go in, & literally, as the name implies, take off the entire top of a pristine mountain to get to the coal, rather than digging & blasting tunnels into it, in the traditional manner. They do it this way because this form of extraction costs the Mining Companies a lot less to get at the coal. The only problem for US is, the mountain-topping process COMPLETELY destroys the mountain, destroys the the surrounding eco-systems & water-tables, & is toxic as fto ...

From my favourite LP, the 1970 'Tom Paxton 6'. The hardships of the miner's life are not over even when he retires.
Tonight, I was talking to a friend of mine about the Presidential election. He is under the impression that if OBama is elected that he is going to shut down all of the coal mines. this is a false statement. I get tickled when I hear statements such as this. Correct me if I am wrong, I believe that the statement was about finding a better way to clean coal. this is how most of the people that are in thhis business scare people to vote the way that they want them to. Both parties are guilty of this. they sue us as "Lab Rats", tell us false statements and we gobble these statements and vote for who they want us to vote for. We need to tell these big money people to butt out and let us thi9nk for ourselves. Most important, Both sides need to tell the truth.

What is clean coal? Coal is primarily carbon. It is based on fossilized plants which are made up of ...what? Carbon. Carbon is what burns. What's left? Toxic chemicals, carbon dioxide and ash. What part of that is clean? None of it. "Clean coal" is a marketing term. No part of coal is clean. C02 is one of the by products of burning coal and it causes global warming. Theoretically it can be removed at the smoke stack, but what do you do with it? Bury it in the ground or ocean? Will it stay there? who knows? No one knows. In the ocean it causes the water to become acidic destroying shell fish and coral where the fish breed and replenish themselves t. In the ground it could leak out and cause more global warming. When you see anyone say "Clean Coal" think that there is no such thing. Even Barack Obama uses the term. He is wrong. No one talks about climate change in the current political debate.

I've been listening to a wonderful discussion about coal on MSNBC (UP with Chris Hayes). First, chuck the phrase "clean coal" from your vocabulary. It doesn't exist. It is in a failing research stage only. No one has ever used any. When Romney goes on about using clean coal as a major energy source he is speaking out of his *** Even the Mine Worker's Union rep agreed to that. Coal is the worst pollutant we have. It emits way too much carbon to sustain life. Clean Coal is a vague attempt to remove the carbon from the coal. It's like trying to remove the shiny stuff from gold. Billions of dollars have been spent on this now dying concept. Yet Clean Coal advertises on TV like it is Mayonnaise. Long live the lying ***
If electric cars take hold, they will become one of the biggest users of electricity presumably a lot of it will be generated by coal under a Romney administration. Romney's coal is good for Edison but not for electric cars.
Can anyone explain to me what "Clean Coal Technology" is? This sounds like an oxymoron to me. When coal is burned it creates immense amounts of CO2 and leaves behind a nasty, ashy mess. Perhaps I am confused.

What an important pot this morning by a FB friend---What legacy are we choosing to leave? How can I play a larger role and have more impact? How can we all? I heard Bill McKibben (350.org) speak tonight in Pt. Reyes. I admire him greatly. In the debates, I’d noticed (blaringly) that the imperative of remedying the rapidly deteriorating condition of the environment due to climate change wasn’t even one of the topics being addressed. This is ludicrous since all the other matters that have been on the floor for debate won't matter, in the long run, unless we protect the environment. We’ll all be toast. Both candidates made mention of ‘clean’ coal which is absurd as there is no such thing. McKibben attributes this to the fact that the fossil fuel industry controls the purse strings of this country and sets the agenda. He commented that there’s been a bi-partisan effort to keep silent about the matter of climate change for the last 20 years. He said we have to break the hold the fossil fuel industr ...

I have been subjected to TV ads that want me to vote4energy and radio ads that ask me to vote for Clean Coal. Even one of our local candidates tells me via radio she wants to burn “clean coal” while “protecting the environment.” I’m sorry, but there is no such thing as clean coal. I would avoid using coal and environment in the same sentence. Our chief electrician took a short call to work at the Craig coal fired plant last year. He called it “blood money.” Wearing earplugs, ear *** a respirator and coveralls in the plant, he said after coming home each night he could not get all the black off of, or out of his body. I believe the earth has the same reaction to spewing these byproducts into her atmosphere. We need to clean up the coal power plants now operating, or close them. That is what the EPA is trying . ...
Clean Coal supporters harassed, barred at Obama-Biden events September 26, 2012 | 12:36 pm Advocates of "clean coal," hopeful of pushing their cause at Obama-Biden campaign events, say that organizers have confiscated T-shirts, hats and signs and harassed supporters. At a Chesterfield, Virginia rally Tuesday for Vice President Biden, clean coal supporters said that their T-shirts, hats and signs were taken as they passed through security. Others said that they were barred from entering after an official who had earlier confiscated clean coal T-shirts called it a "private event." Wednesday at a rally for President Obama in Bowling Green, Ohio, clean coal advocates in their T-shirts and hats were asked to leave and their video tracker filming their treatment was filmed by an event video tracker.
So the candidates are both for "clean coal"? I can tell you exactly what "Clean Coal" looks like--my father was a coal miner and he died of BLACK LUNG. It's a slow death, took him years to die. Death on the installment plan.
What in the world is Self-Deportation?! Is that like Clean Coal and Legitimate Rape?
Romney says "Clean Coal" Must be that crack he's been smoking. Lies & More Lies!
Shaw Completes New 585-MW Clean Coal-fired Generating Plant in Virginia BATON ROUGE, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 12, 2012-- The Shaw Group Inc. (NYSE: SHAW) today announced it has achieved substantial completion of the new Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center, a 585-megawatt clean coal-fired generating plant in Virginia for Dominion Virginia Power. As part of substantial completion, the plant was operated at its rated capacity and released to Dominion for commercial operation. In 2007, Shaw was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction contract for the new plant, which incorporates clean coal technologies and two circulating fluidized bed boilers supplying steam to a single steam turbine generator. Clean coal technologies, combined with modern post-combustion controls, result in low emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, particulate matter and mercury. “As one of the cleanest coal plants of its kind, the Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center is capable of burning a diverse mix of fuels,” s ...
There's no such thing as "Clean Coal" and we know what other fossil fuels do to our environment. Solar is the purest form of energy available and the politicians are largely ignoring it in this country. It's time for ALL of our leaders to recognize that our very survival is linked to the development of clean energy sources and stop arguing about the best ways to continue using fossil fuels! Nineteenth century technologies are just too dangerous in our ever warming atmosphere.
My Dad posted a picture earlier about how "Clean Coal" came up in the debate between Obama and Romney but Climate Change didn't make the agenda. Here are my thoughts on coal and the coal industry. There is no such thing as clean coal, there is 'cleaner' coal but when you compare that to the green types of power generation coal is very bad for the environment. I've seen several ads this political season with coal workers disparaging the current administration due to how Obama has poured funding into green energy research, and how they are having a harder time making a living because of all the regulation that has been instituted on the coal industry. It seems to me these people need to realize that coal is doing more harm than good to our entire ecosystem, I realize that in certain areas of the country there isn't much option for work other than being a coal miner. But its time we as a nation begin to lessen our dependency on coal. The companies that rely on coal will be forced into spreading into oth ...
Seems to be more people getting kept out of rallies and such because they are wearing the wrong clothing -- a McCain shirt, a "Clean Coal" shirt, etc. Sign of the times, I suppose as we try harder and harder to keep those who oppose our views silent. Rest in Peace, First Amendment.
I'm all for saving the environment,but where will you get the 1.21Gigga watts to get that power to your car Dr.Emmett Brown?Come on people;we have to get smart,Natural Gas,Clean Coal,Start drilling,Keystone pipeline.Reality guys, Reality!
Remember a couple of talking points Obama chest pounded at his DNC speech was his having a Strong Foreign Policy and National Defense, Clean Coal and Clean Energy jobs with wind and solar and GM is Alive and Bin Ladin is Dead! Be very sure leading up to Election Day you give a lot of weight to what Obama does and does not rather than what he says in glossy speeches. Just call him who he is " Very Barry High Gloss ". Maybe that will help better define his true identity if you are tempted to sip the Kool-Aid. The biggest thing Barack Obama and Bill Clinton have in common is ugly wives and doing something else other than being at the helm during a crisis and definitely some new "Arithmetic ". Bill Clinton's AKA "Slick Willy", AKA "I did not have sex with that woman". I was flavoring my cigars and fighting impeachment in Congress. Very Barry High Gloss.I have everything under control! Just like the assurance we got when he was on vacation in Hawaii and the Shoe Bomber was arrested and read his rights at the d ...
What about the XL Pipeline. Clean Coal. Yea right tell that to the United Mine Workers and the people of West Virgina. Natural Gas? Hum, he hates fracking. I wonder how he proposes to do that.
At one point, I thought Romney would use Manifest Destiny again. He completely ignored and offended all first Americans. Made it very clear he does not care about the planet or its resources, except to the extent he can make money. Energy dependence via fossil fuels is a death sentence for the PLANET. Stupid! Clean Coal and Natural Gas. YES, Absolutely. Oil, ABSOLUTELY NOT. Solar, Wind, Water, YES. Safe Nuclear, YES. No more pipelines, DEMAND efficient transportation and industry. This nation had over 500 nations who lived in peace and in balance with the Planet. Then the immigrants came and destroyed that balance, claimed the resources and gifts of Mother Earth as their own, put the first Americans into concentration camps and continue the same today. Where is their hope, their America?
Republicons believe that putting the word "clean" next to the word "coal" actually creates something called "Clean Coal". The symbol for their party shouldn't be an elephant. It should be a unicorn. (credit to Bill Maher, paraphrased)
It's getting hot out there! and gonna get hotter! under their energy plan... Renewables are our best way to insure a sustainable energy future but takes some progressive and not degressive thinking... Clean Coal - it's what they want to serve us up for supper (mercury).
Listening to a story about the crazy drought we are experiencing and thinking about what it's going to mean for people on a community level and what climate change has meant for people all around the world. And then a damned Clean Coal commercial starts playing... smh.
It's reassuring to know that the Republicans and Big Oil and Clean Coal and the Koch brothers remind us that global warming is a hoax perpetrated by climate scientists trying to get big research grants. Not to worry!
Which energy policy should be at the tip of our Presidents tongue every energy speech? Clean Coal (that doesn't exist so he lied)? Drill baby drill at home, which he's adopted that position. Allowing for mutltinational companies to drill in the gulf again right away with ZERO regulation or change in the blowout preventers faulty design. Or this...
Because of the easy money policies (including printing money) of Ben Bernanke & the Federal Reserve, economic doomsdayers had been predicting rapid inflation, a declining dollar, & the economic decline of the US, especially manufacturing. The US is the 2nd largest manufacturer in the world & this sector has had continuous expansion for 24 months. Now expect low inflation & low interest rates to continue. A major reason is falling energy prices in part due to cheap Natural Gas. Year to date: the price of Natural Gas -16%, crude oil -7%, & coal -22%. Expect coal to perform poorly because gas is easier to transport, is cheaper, & cleaner. There is no such thing as "Clean Coal." No, we are not out of the "economic woods," but the trend is positive.
CAme back from the USEPA hearing on establishing the first ever limits on CO2 pollution from the coal industries. Wondered where the dozen or so young people in Clean Coal t-shirts came from? Heard they got their job from Craig's list! Did my 5 minute spiel, Dave Segel and I were at the press conference on Dearborn and Adams St. Great day. Hope we made a difference!
