Romney's ‘clean coal’ devotion

The first US presidential debate showed us Mitt Romney would like to “continue burning clean coal,” which begs the question: when did we start? Meanwhile, climate change didn’t get a mention – by either candidate.

US Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has again laid down his energy policy during his first debate with President Barack Obama and it is a simple one: ‘oil, gas and coal – as much as we can get, from wherever we can get it in America’.
