Energy Secretary Stephen Chu Supports Clean Coal

There is no such thing as 'clean coal,' but we support Energy Secretary Steven Chu's position on coal use:

"...the United States has the most known coal reserves in the world and that more than half of domestic electricity is generated by coal. Even if the United States turns its back on coal, China and India will not, and so, given the state of affairs, I would prefer to say let's try to develop technologies that can get a large fraction of the carbon dioxide out of coal."
