Wash Your Hands of Clean Coal

Why are we still discussing Clean Coal technology?

I do not understand why we are willing to spend millions of dollars to figure out how to make dirty energy sources clean when clean ones already exist, especially, when any given dirty energy is a non-renewable resource. Why wait until we are in a true crisis before we do what is ultimately inevitable?

It has been 40 years since we sent a man to the moon. There are cars that can run solely on water. We live in an age where we can instantly access information or converse with people around the globe. We have even successfully cloned sheep and other animals. The earth in all it’s wisdom has provided us with everything that we need. We are beyond the point of trying to resurrect dinosaurs; it is time to leave the fossil fuels buried where they belong.

Humans currently ingest enough synthetic compounds and absorb enough radiation in our lifetime to turn our burial grounds into depositories for hazardous substances. That is some serious stuff to think about. It doesn't even account for the products we put on our bodies or... if we are ingesting all this crap, what the hell are we feeding our pets.
