Burying Greenhouse Gases In A Metal Tomb

You can tell this coal plant is eco-friendly, because it has cool-looking curved surfaces and clean transparent lines. The $1.8 billion FutureGen project just chose Mattoon, IL for its new clean coal plant, which turns coal into gas and separates out the harmful CO2. The plant will bury the CO2 underground, and planners swear it will never get out. We've heard that one before, plus we're bracing for giant mutant groundhogs in a few years. [Chicago Tribune]
