Ah, but now coal is relabeled as "clean coal" so it must be okay. Right? If has a new name that contains the word clean or green than of course it must be safe. People are so self destructive and so willingly to accept quick easy answers.

Since The EU is more progressive maybe they will come to their senses.

I'm ashamed to be a EU member! I have to say though; -I voted NO to membership some 15 years ago...

That's okay for me if it keeps my enery price down - they estimate that they have to double the carbon tax in order to get back on track, and I don't want to pay much more than I do.
