"Another Company Leaves 'Mixed Messaging' Coal Alliance"

"Another member of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity is leaving the coal-and-utility trade group, citing concerns about whether the alliance wants to obstruct legislation to cap greenhouse gas emissions.

Alstom Power, a French company that makes parts for power plants and is working on carbon sequestration, said it is leaving ACCCE immediately.

'We have resigned from ACCCE because of questions that have been raised about ACCCE's support for climate legislation,' said Tim Brown, an Alstom spokesman. The French company, which is partnering with U.S. utilities on power-plant projects, said that it wants to 'remove any doubt about our full support' for a climate bill."
