Liquid Coal: The Stupid Fuel

We have had much sport with real marketing by the coal companies and their flacks, including silly print ad campaigns, hokey commercials, great parodies , blatant jerkness and insensitivity, and hilarious flag-wrapped branding.

Now cartoonist Mark Fiore adds his wit on behalf of the NRDC's campaign explain that there is no such thing as clean coal. EcoGeek summarizes the message: "the worst new energy technology in the world is undeniably liquid coal. Some people (mostly people who own coal mines) want to replace 100% of America's gasoline usage with a fuel that comes from coal. It produces two times more CO2, consumes three times more water than gasoline, and gives us more incentive to tear down our mountain ranges."
