On my trip home Friday, I saw someone in the airport watching Kilowatt Ours. The West Virginia mountain top blowing and scraping reminded me of something I didn’t have time to comment on few weeks ago—the coal ash spills in Tennessee around Christmas. What a stark and terrible reminder of the consequences of our energy choices. We cannot dig or drill our way out of energy situation. Forget the clean coal mythology. We need to get smarter how we use energy, in our building, homes, for transportation, and for industry.
