A Fossil-fuelled Fantasy

This article from Truthout debunks the expensive but futile investments in Canada and the US in so-called ‘clean coal’ technology which it argues is enormously expensive but with virtually no merit in reducing the deleterious impact on the atmosphere of burning coal.  It has a cartoon lampooning Obama’s policy shifts and the readers’ comments set out the range of attitudes to  this ‘texchnofix’ approach to what seems like an insoluble problem, given the scale of economic demand for fossil-fuelled energy.
