It was in all the papers this morning. According to the Sydney Morning Herald:
In a public relations coup for the coal industry, its chief lobby group will join forces with two prominent environment groups, WWF and the Climate Institute, and the miners’ union, to call on the Rudd Government to set up a national task force to develop “clean coal”. The new alliance, led by the Australian Coal Association, will be launched in Canberra today.
Let us say here and now that we at Crikey are all for clean coal, just as we have always been eager supporters of limited nuclear war, a controlled market economy and the multiple benefits of military intelligence.
