And far be it to the tree huggers and environmentalist’s knowledge of or the lack thereof and their ignorance there are actually a few ways to process coal as in gasification to make natural gas or make synthetic fuels out of coal that burns cleanly and there are some who want to build a few plants to do just that but Obama and this administration will have none of that, idiots.
