wow. i've just gotten some more info. on the topic.

excerpt from
"The Reality Coalition is a project of the Alliance for Climate Protection, Sierra Club, National Wildlife Federation, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the League of Conservation Voters, and tells the truth about coal today — it isn't clean.

According to Brian Hardwick, the spokesperson for, the campaign just launched last Thursday, about a week ago.

while watching the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC last night, by coincidence/synchronicity with yesterday's fluxlife post, Rachel was interviewing Brian Hardwick.

Author and publisher, Tracy Falbe, brought up the point in yesterday's comments at fluxlife, that even if the pollution from coal burning is removed, we still have the environmental devastation of our forests and mountains due to mountain top removal when coal is harvested. a great site regarding mountain top removal, recommended by Tracy, is:
