Is clean coal as oxymoronic (and just plain moronic) as healthy cigarettes? Natalie of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network thinks so. She and others irked by the ubiquitous misinformation of the clean-coal lobby joined the Sierra Club to deliver more than 5,000 anti-coal slogans to the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity. The Sierra Club’s contest for catchy coal smack-downs resulted in the top 10 slogans, including “Coal: Party like it’s 1899!” and “Coal: It will take your breath away.” The slogans are being featured on a digital billboard-on-wheels, alongside pictures from the Tennessee coal ash spill.
