So I’m all for ripping the coal industry. Their “Clean Coal” campaign is about as oxymoronic as Bush’s “Health Forest Initiative” a while back that basically clear cut everything in sight. And they deserve whatever they get.
I just wished the Coal Industry would have gotten more than this effort from the Coen Brothers.
I mean, it’s kind of funny. And it’s well done. But there’s no substance. The Coal Industry is trying to just say “Clean” over and over to get us to think it’s ok for the environment without any proof. But that’s exactly what this commercial does, too. They just mock “Clean” over and over again and never really give us any reason to believe them other than “We’re not the Coal Industry.”
I’m not looking for a scientific dissertation on why “Clean Coal” isn’t. I just want something for when I call Rush Limbaugh and tell him he’s a liar.
