    How could you be against a project which promises to use “… a technology that is mission-critical to addressing climate
    change, national energy security, and providing a means to use our country’s vast
    domestic coal resources in an environmentally responsible way.”

    Harry, Harry, Harry — we’ve heard it all before, promises, promises, promises. Who benefits? Who loses? Who pays? Who suffers the consequences of these bogus – sure to fail ‘solutions’? Keep the coal in the ground – CO2 contained ‘safely’ and not pumped or pipe to who knows where through who knows what, another plundering disaster in the making.
