“Clean coal” is rapidly becoming more important as energy demands continue to rise. Clean coal is coal that has been stripped of minerals and other impurities. It is then gasified and burned, and resulting flue gases can be treated with steam and re-burned to make CO2 in the flue gas economically recoverable.

Amory Lovins wears many hats -- theoretical physicist, adviser to the U.S. auto industry and to the Pentagon. But during the luncheon address to the Division of Environmental Geosciences at the recent AAPG Annual Convention in Houston, Lovins added a new hat to his collection -- that of “wildcatter.”
