Pick: What a bunch of jerks at Mother Jones. That photo in the article is not from a coal fired power house. (unless the boiler just blew up) I work for an electric utility that has a coal fired plant. Our stacks do not look at all like the smoke stacks in the picture. In fact you can't see anything AT ALL coming out of ours, even when it's running a max power.
Pick: maddermax and PC LOAD LETTER need to take a windshield tour of some local coal fired plants. That picture on Mother Jones is NOT the norm for a coal fired plant in the US. Maybe China, but not here.
