Liquid coal is a bad choice

Posted Feb. 14, 2012 / Posted by: Ben Schreiber

Friends of the Earth has been monitoring the Medicine-Bow liquid coal facility since we first discovered that the Department of Energy is considering giving the project a loan guarantee. Medicine-Bow is a bellwether project because if completed it would be the first liquid coal facility in the U.S.

Recently, however, it has come to light that DKRW, the company behind Medicine-Bow, is trying to get the state of Wyoming as well as Carbon County, Wyoming to provide them with financing as well.  Doug Koplow of Earth Track just posted a blog about why Medicine-Bow is a bad idea for Wyoming. I highly recommend reading it.
