Brian Williams Calls Presidential Candidates Filthy Coal-smeared Liars

It's green week at NBC, so we can all expect a lot of hang-wringing and hearing of the phrase, "we have no time to waste." Obviously, they are right, but we don't have an economy anymore and gas is cheap, so nothing will change.

Brian Williams begins this segment by saying,

"Coal. While you might have heard the phrase 'clean coal' during the presidential campaign, it's actually an oxymoron. Wishful thinking."

Good for you Brian! Then Anne Thompson goes to Germany and tells us about some great new coal power plant "over there" that won't KILL US ALL. America was going to make one but our Congress decided, "meh."

Watch the surprisingly good segment below, and wonder at the fact that green energy initiatives are still politically dangerous.
