"To Clean Up Coal, Obama Pushes More Oil Production"

"DE KALB, Miss. – America’s newest and cleanest coal-fired power plant comes with a catch: The heat-trapping carbon dioxide removed from its smokestack pollution will help force more oil out of the ground."

"Some environmentalists complain that it ends up releasing more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than is stored underground as waste.

It’s another example of the Obama administration promoting new, cleaner technologies and allowing companies to do things it otherwise would oppose as harmful to the environment."
