    I fully agree with your premise that we need to do more to bring proper clean-energy projects to coal-producing regions. But we're spending...hundreds? of millions on developing "clean coal", which many people likely think is a useful goal to combat climate change.

    I wish those words wouldn't get stuck together, either...but they have been, so one of the things we need to do is make sure people realize "clean coal" is NOT an environmentally friendly replacement for "normal" coal burning.

    We can't push solar/wind/nuclear/pick-your-actual-clean-energy as well if the public thinks "oh, that 'clean coal' stuff will solve the coal problem!"
