It’s not financially, physically or politically possible.
The Washington Times reports:
President Obama’s new climate change agenda seems to spell the eventual end for coal-fired power plants in America.
But new findings released Wednesday could offer a path to survival for the fuel, which still provides about 40 percent of the nation’s electricity.
The U.S. Geological Survey now estimates that as much as 3,000 metric gigatons of carbon dioxide could be stored underground in rock formations. Such large-scale storage would greatly reduce — or perhaps eliminate entirely — harmful carbon emissions from coal plants, seen by Mr. Obama and many others as the driving force behind climate change and the target of harsh new regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency.
