Clean Coal

Barack Obama has been praising clean coal saying,  “Clean coal technology is something that can make America energy independent.” More recently the Reality Coalition has been running ads saying, “In reality, there’s no such thing as clean coal.” Fact Check has tried to sort through the conflicting claims. Their conclusion is that clean coal is possible “though it would come with a big price tag.”

    “Clean” has undergone a very expensive redefinition in the last couple of years.   I wonder if the rhetoric change will stick — instead of having to argue about global warming, proponents of CO2 reduction simply have to argue about whether something is “clean” or “dirty”, but only if the language shift is not challenged.
