Washington Post Editorial: The dream of ‘clean coal’ is burning up 10.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
The United States can now officially count two disastrous, expensive failures of carbon capture and storage — a technology key to realizing the dream of “clean coal.” The Kemper County Energy Facility was supposed to burn cheap, dirty lignite coal without emitting climate-altering carbon dioxide. Mississippi ended up with a very expensive natural gas plant that pumps carbon dioxide into the atmosphere like any other. The idea was to turn coal into a synthetic gas, from which planet-warming carbo...

And giving up on carbon capture makes sense for the energy industry. The technology is too expensi...

Window Rock, Ariz. • Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye is scheduled to sign a lease extension that will allow a coal-fired power plant in northeastern Arizona to continue operating through December 2019.

Gehrke: Coal exec Bob Murray’s attacks on John Oliver shouldn’t silence critical voices 28.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
What, you might ask, could I possibly have in common with John Oliver?

Oliver, the host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” is being sued for a brilliantly scorching critique of Bully Bob, the owner of the largest private coal company in the country.
