AllGov : “‘Clean coal’ was always a term that summoned to mind other oxymorons such as ‘jumbo shrimp,’ but now even the federal government has pulled the plug on a pilot project on which the hopes of those believing in clean coal rested.”  

“The Department of Energy announced last week that it would cease support for the FutureGen project, a power plant that was supposed to trap and store underground the carbon dioxide it produced, which was initiated by the George W. Bush administration and revived under President Barack Obama.”
