The Coen Brothers take on "clean coal"

The Coen brothers are into the act against "clean coal" with a series of ads, which you can see after you have seen this one. Unfortunately, the entire campaign is about the sequestering part of "clean coal" even though the ad itself shows black coal soot, which "clean coal" doesn't address at all. There's no such thing as clean coal. It's black, dirty, toxic, and lays waste enormous tracts of once-gorgeous landscape.

We are up against powerful forces, including our own president, who otherwise is doing a lot of good things. He hasn't gotten the full picture yet on coal, even though many organizations have been trying to get through to him. This is one issue he's not really listening on. Why?
