America burns more than a billion tons of coal a year and coal-fired power plants are the single greatest source of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming. Many of us are not aware that even now, in a world globally connected by the Internet, half our electricity still comes from this dirty, 19th century technology. “Dirty Business” investigates the coal lobby's $40 million dollar campaign to convince us that the technology to make coal “clean” already exists. In fact, that technology, called “carbon capture and storage,” is not in full commercial operation anywhere in the world, and experts say that may not happen for 15 years or more, and even then may not be economically viable. “Dirty Business” is the first major public media project to explain and demystify “clean coal” and to explore the extent to which increased energy efficiency and renewable energy sources such as wind and solar thermal power might make “clean coal” unnecessary and uneconomical.
