Today, Al Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection, League of Conservation Voters, National Wildlife Federation, Natural Resources Defense Council and Sierra Club launched the Reality Coalition, a national grassroots and advertising effort with a simple message: in reality, there is no such thing as clean coal. Coal, they say, cannot be considered clean until its carbon dioxide emissions are captured and stored. The Coalition is backing a multi-million dollar ad campaign, running in print, broadcast and online media and supported by the website www.ThisIsReality.org.
In a recent New York Times op-ed, Gore argued that until coal is truly clean, there should be no new coal-fired power plants built in America.
