Fox News is doing a special report on the FutureGen project and — rather remarkably — couldn’t find anyone to argue that $6500/kW coal-fired power coupled to a hydrogen plant is a dumb idea.

Then along came Grist, and this crazy blogger who thinks FutureGen is dopey. The interview was last Friday; they’re running the coverage tonight, in advance of tomorrow’s decision on whether Illinois or Texas will “win.” (Nice plug for Grist here, eh? Apparently, nowhere else in the world can you find someone who won’t sing the praises of this particular boondoggle.)

Now to see whether I look as smart as I think I am after editing …
