Time to end the clean coal charade

It’s time clean coal advocates admitted the obvious: subsidies will need to extend well beyond just a few demonstration plants. They’ll need feed-in tariffs and should stop pretending they are more worthy of support than the renewables sector.

Over the last ten years I’ve heard an incredible amount of nonsense from people championing carbon capture and storage (CCS), a.k.a. clean coal. This was usually because those pushing the technology actually had no genuine commercial interest in seeing it happen. They just saw it as a public relations tool to stop meaningful policies to reduce emissions.
