In reality, there is no such thing as "clean" coal in America today

There are no homes in America powered by "clean" coal today. There are no "clean" coal power plants selling electricity in America today. In fact, America does not have a single demonstration "clean" coal plant that captures and safely stores its carbon pollution. The technologies that capture or safely store CO2 have not yet been integrated with coal power at commercial scale. This means that the roughly 600 coal plants producing electricity in the US today are not preventing their global warming pollution from entering the atmosphere. Although the technologies are being developed and tested, in reality, there is no such thing as "clean" coal power in America today.
