Boston Globe Editorial: Coal miner's nation  -- The United States cannot wean itself from coal overnight. But as Congress and all Americans chart the nation's energy future, coal's environmental costs, especially its contribution to global warming, have to be factored into the equation. So do those accidents in Utah, Indiana, and China. No other energy solution -- not wind, solar, nuclear, biomass, natural gas, geothermal, and certainly not conservation and efficiency -- takes a toll in lives and environmental destruction that is at all comparable to coal's.

Round Three for "Clean Coal" (No matter how many taxpayer $billions you give the coal industry and no matter how much you lessen the air pollution resulting from burning coal, coal will always be dirty. It's dirty when you mine it, dirty when you clean it for market, dirty when you haul it to market, dirty when you burn it, dirty when you dispose of the ash--and it sure dirties up politics! Renewable energy now! Jobs with a future, not jobs that destroy our future.)
