Biden said, “No Clean Coal Plants Here in America!”

In recent months, there’s been much talk about the development of clean coal technology in Kentucky. In a June 30, 2008 press release, Governor Beshear said, “The importance of carbon dioxide sequestration research for our state’s and the nation’s energy future cannot be overstated,” said Gov. Beshear. “Kentucky has been a strong supporter of efforts to develop partnerships and projects such as this one, and the results from this testing are crucial in our quest to develop and implement clean coal technologies and become a world leader in energy production.”

Apparently, Governor Beshear hasn’t discussed his goals for clean coal with Senators’ Obama and Biden.

“No coal plants here in America!” pledged the Democratic vice-presidential nominee Senator Joe Biden. “Build ’em, if they’re gonna build ’em, over there [in China] and make ’em clean because they’re killing ya.”
