Clean Coal!

Some friends I talked to recently were remarking about Bush’s clean coal campaign plank. I could not remember hearing him talk about it at all, but lo and behold in today’s Federal Register, there was a link to this solicitation from the DOE. The bottom where it describes the solicitation is what is interesting.

Also, there is a sentence in there about why they are offering up this funding:

Clean coal-fired powerplants remain the major source of electricity
for the world while distributed generation, including renewables, will
assume a growing share of the energy market.

That is a comforting statement. Even though some other things in the document bother me.
It would be nice to think that the Department of Energy wants to help us move to renewable, cleaner sources of fuel.
