clean coal adds prohibited

The UK (as in England Scotland etc.) they have been suffering a nightly barrage of bullshit adverts on the tele about clean coal.  Well that ends.  It's deemed false advertising says the government, there is no such thing as clean coal.  It's dirty and kills when mined, hauled, burned, it's ash is handled.
I wish they were banned in the US.

And I might add, the so called Obama war on coal is a war on smoke, if you scrub the smoke you can burn all you want.  Thankfully yesterday in Memphis one of the nations dirtiest coal fired plants was given a death sentence.  No later than Dec. 31 2018 the fire will go out, replaced by natural gas plant and clean wind energy.    The NG plant is not good news though so long as fracking and habitual and willful methane leaks are allowed in the industry.
