    Coal FIRST! JFC! This is almost beyond words. What a waste of money by the DOE to assemble this slick load of bullshit, lies, and distortion. Yet another mortal sin by the Trump administration in its failed response to climate change.

    (and just more proof that COAL is not going away any time soon—-besides here in the USA, look at the news from China and India for proof of that)

    OH SHIT!


  3. Notice the out – “we want these plants to be emissions free” not possible with coal but WTH – it’s the “we wat” that’s the out – leave an escape hatch a Mack truck could drive through.

    The CAT would rate the existing US target under the Paris Agreement “Insufficient”, as it is not stringent enough to limit warming to 2°C, let alone 1.5˚C. However, given the Trump Administration’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, which nullifies the target, we rate the US “Critically insufficient.”

    Ha Ha. There’s some post-Truth for you. Half arrogant, half devil may care.

    We’re getting more and more of this kind of outright contempt and provocation.

    DOE Wants to Fund ‘Small Modular Coal Plants.’ What Does That Mean?
    Small modular coal plants could represent a “paradigm shift,” according to a DOE official.

    One thing this article does not discuss is how to get the coal to the small plant. You would still need rail access and offloading facility, unless you’re going to truck it in.

    Coal is going away, no amount of government bullshit can change that. No sane investor is going to put money into a coal fired plant. New coal cannot compete, old coal cannot even compete on the marginal costs.
