• Develop and Deploy Clean Coal Technology. Carbon capture and storage technologies hold
enormous potential to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions as we power our economy with
domestically produced and secure energy. As a U.S. Senator, Obama has worked tirelessly to
ensure that clean coal technology becomes commercialized. An Obama administration will
provide incentives to accelerate private sector investment in commercial scale zero‐carbon coal
facilities. In order to maximize the speed with which we advance this critical technology, Barack
Obama and Joe Biden will instruct DOE to enter into public private partnerships to develop 5
“first‐of‐a‐kind” commercial scale coal‐fired plants with carbon capture and sequestration.
Actually if you look on his site you'll find very little concerning coal except for statements like the one above which conveneiently leave out the fate of existing technology.. Most of it revolves around green technology which of course is astronomically more expensive.
Be afraid, be very afraid.

Exactly, they'll be taking money from coal and use it to subsidize green plants like solar. The money being used to subsidize the building of new plants should instead be used for development of both coal and green solutions instead of dumping it down a black hole. The U.S. citizen is just paying more for energy in the end. These costs will rise as coal becomes artificially more expensive to operate.
