The commercial with the coal over in Wyoming? Clean coal my ass. It's bituminous IIRC. Bituminous isn't that clean, although it's not as bad as the lignite crap we burn down here :facepalm:

Anthracite is the only kind of "clean" coal and the only place you can get it is Pennsylvania. It's a lot rarer and more expensive than bituminous too.

It's all about sulfur content.

Global warming isn't real anyway so who cares how "clean" something is?

True, but sulfur dioxide isn't really much fun.
