Given how the War on Drugs® and the War on Terrorism® have gone, you'd think Big Coal would welcome a War on Coal®.

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.

A quick GIS of coal fired power plants says otherwise.

So apparently yours is just special, but mother jones does not seem to be being unfair using that picture.

New technologies that were stifled in the past have been given encouragement under Obama. The enviro movement adds a little fuel, but mostly it's a long overdue energy industry expansion.
