    Here is yet another article on using Coal Flue Gas to generate Algae for Synthetic Fuel:

    And the Algae can be processed into Desiel and Aviation fuel too!

    Yeah, no


    Burning coal is also a leading cause of smog, acid rain, and toxic air pollution. Some emissions can be significantly reduced with readily available pollution controls, but most U.S. coal plants have not installed these technologies.

    Sulfur dioxide (SO2): Coal plants are the United Statesí leading source of SO2 pollution, which takes a major toll on public health, including by contributing to the formation of small acidic particulates that can penetrate into human lungs and be absorbed by the bloodstream. SO2 also causes acid rain, which damages crops, forests, and soils, and acidifies lakes and streams. A typical uncontrolled coal plant emits 14,100 tons of SO2 per year. A typical coal plant with emissions controls, including flue gas desulfurization (smokestack scrubbers), emits 7,000 tons of SO2 per year.

    Nitrogen oxides (NOx): NOx pollution causes ground level ozone, or smog, which can burn lung tissue, exacerbate asthma, and make people more susceptible to chronic respiratory diseases. A typical uncontrolled coal plant emits 10,300 tons of NOx per year. A typical coal plant with emissions controls, including selective catalytic reduction technology, emits 3,300 tons of NOx per year.

    Last month the DICK of UNREGULATING stopped this. Not, let's see what they have to say. Nope, YOU CAN' RESEARCH it anymore. Anyone think the data they did get was handed over for evaluation? Hell we might find out kids and people and animals do DIE from nearby sites from this mehod of extraction. What are the environmental effects of chopping off the tops off mountains, erosion, fires, lakes, rivers, streams and woodlands in its way? Who wants to know any of this shit, right?


    Trump administration halts research on mountaintop removal coal mining

    Trump administration halts research on mountaintop removal coal mining
    The Trump administration has ordered researchers to stop work on an independent evaluation of potential health effects from mountaintop removal coal mining.

    The Interior Department’s Office of Surface Mining (OSM) last year, under then-President Obama, had commissioned the research into the possible connections between certain health risks and living near current or former surface mining sites in Appalachia. The OSM committed $1 million to the two-year effort after West Virginia officials requested it in 2015.

    But the agency sent a letter Friday to the National Academy of Sciences, which it had contracted to do the independent review, asking it to stop its work immediately.
    Interior defended the pause as a necessary step toward ensuring responsible use of taxpayer money.

    Those restrictions and limits on real pollution remain in place.
