Clean Coal.

It’s a scam if there ever was one.

We certainly learned this when President Bush’s FutureGen project imploded.

The clean coal poster child was put out to pasture after the cost of the plant climbed to $1.8 billion. And that was just to build it. But just when we thought the coast was clear, O-bonehead decided to pump another billion of your tax dollars into the FutureGen money pit. I guess he was looking to score points with environmentalists.

But they don’t want that crap, either.
