Is when I will believe coal can be clean. Not a lake in this great state of ours lacks mercury pollution from burning coal. Lends new meaning to teaching a man to fish, doesn't it.

Good that these guys, doomsayers, were not around with the advent of the whale oil lamps, coal oil lamps, and the waste product gasoline. They have no vision, and are dispensers of the Kool-aid for all the left wing liberals to consume. If you want the facts, here is a link to facts, not propaganda. http://www.fossil.energy.gov/

We need more nuclear power plants. They are the cleanest energy available. Lets follow France and get back in the game of clean energy.

Crazystev, they make films, whether the films be movies, shorts, commercials, they are still films and fall into the Coens' milieu. They did not conceive the idea, nor did they write the scripts. That was done by someone else. All they did was take it and turn it into a commercial. Something tells me that if they had done the pro-clean coal commercials, you would be all for it. Am I wrong?

It's easy for them to sit back and complain as they constantly take taxpayer money to fund their films. It's always 'someone else will pay for it' with these people.
