Political energy: candidates warm to 'clean coal'

Mountain top removal coal mining in West Virginia

TUCSON -- Amid bad news today from the Arizona Legislature on global warming pollution, the pro-coal politics in West Virginia from Dems Obama and Clinton are understandable in a Presidential primary, but still frustrating.

Not surprisingly, Republican McCain also favors so-called 'clean coal', which is right now an unproven myth that may never become feasible.

I favor more solar, wind and clean alternatives, less coal. We have a responsibility to future generations.

Arizona, West Virginia and America can and must have an energy revolution, and lead the transition toward good green jobs.
