The ozone layer has been in "repair modes" for many years now. Many advancements in technologies have ALREADY been applied to energy productions especially.
To ignore subsidizing ALL areas of energy productions in favor of just some and to hone in on and hammer down on just ONE area of natural resources used for such, is living in a lala land-because there's a world FULL of contaimenents being dumped daily.

Kind of like just ignoring what went on in Benghazi and blaming it off on some obscurity of convenience, especially with big black flags waving for weeks prior.

ST. LOUIS and SPRINGFIELD, Ill., July 10 /PRNewswire/--

AmerenUE's Labadie Plant has earned the top spot among U.S. coal-fired power plants as the nation's lowest emitter of nitrogen oxide (NOx), according to 1999 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency data on electric utility plant NOx emissions. Nitrogen oxide emissions can contribute to ozone formation under certain summertime hot weather conditions. Reduction of NOx emissions can help to lower ozone levels and improve air quality.

In addition, the power plants of St. Louis-based AmerenUE and Springfield-based AmerenCIPS, hold 13 of the nation's top 20 spots in a 1999 ranking of generating plants with the lowest NOx emissions.(NOTE: On May 1, 2000, AmerenCIPS electric generating facilities became part of a newly created nonregulated company -- AmerenEnergy Generating Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ameren.) An operating company of St. Louis-based Ameren Corporation (NYSE: AEE), AmerenUE owns and operates the facilities occupying the top six spots in the listing.

To reduce sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions from its power plants, Ameren companies have spent more than $300 million since the early 1990s. AmerenUE invested in low-NOx burner technology at its Labadie, Meramec and Rush Island Plants in the metropolitan St. Louis area. At Labadie Plant, the company installed state-of-the-art computerized controls that monitor hundreds of variables on a nearly continuous basis and make fine adjustments to the air and fuel. In St. Charles County, AmerenUE's Sioux Plant pioneered the use of a staged combustion/overfire air system that reduces NOx cost-effectively in a cyclone boiler plant, which can't use standard low-NOx burner technology. That technology allowed Sioux Unit 2 to become the lowest emitting cyclone boiler in the nation.

Three AmerenUE plants received the 1998 Missouri Governor's Pollution Prevention Award for voluntarily and aggressively reducing nitrogen oxide emissions by more than 50% below the Clean Air Act requirements -- in spite of an increase in the amount of coal burned. Systemwide, since 1990 Ameren plants have reduced their NOx emission rate by more than 50 percent and their sulfur dioxide rate by more than 70 percent.

FutureGen Industrial Alliance Announces Carbon Storage Site Selection Process for FutureGen 2.0

Washington, D.C.- The FutureGen Industrial Alliance today announced details of a process that will lead to the selection of an Illinois site for the storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) collected at FutureGen 2.0, a landmark project that will advance the deployment of carbon capture and storage technology at an Ameren Energy Resources power plant in Meredosia, Illinois. Last month the Department of Energy signed two agreements, one with the FutureGen Industrial Alliance and one with Ameren Energy Resources that committed $1 billion in Recovery Act funding to design, build and operate FutureGen 2.0.

"Todayís announcement is another important step forward for the FutureGen 2.0 project in Illinois," said Secretary Chu. "This first of its kind repowering project will create jobs in Illinois while advancing technology that can make the United States a world leader in carbon capture and storage."

"We are going to demonstrate to the world that we can use one of our greatest natural assets in a way that protects our environment and puts more people to work in Illinois. FutureGen will continue making Illinois an international leader in developing the latest in cutting-edge, clean coal technology," Illinois Governor Pat Quinn said.

"This is an exciting opportunity for Illinois communities to participate in a project that will put our state and our nation at the forefront of clean coal technology," said U.S. Senator Dick Durbin. "Under this competitive process, interested communities that meet the selection criteria will have a fair shot at hosting the CO2 storage hub, visitorís center, research site and training facility. These facilities will create economic development, provide good-paying jobs and attract researchers and visitors from around the world."

This is how short the ringers memory is, they are like goldfish. Both sides of politics believed in man made climate change until the GFC in 2008 then when money was tight it suddenly became a myth. Meanwhile, the Chinese put another 30 million cars on the road every year and none of this makes a difference. Along with a new coal powered power station every second week. Then the planet starts to get extreme weather , not once every 100yrs but every damn year now. Europe has been flooded 3 yrs out of 5, The US has been flooded, blown away and drought stricken all in the space of 5 yrs. In the Southern hemisphere, places like Australia the driest continent on earth has also been flooded 3 yrs out of 5. All the ice caps a melting, the coral reefs are dying, fish species going with it and what has the right have to say, "move along nothing to see here" History will judge these ppl complete morons for destroying their own home.

Is one area of the nation more deserving of clean coal technology than another?
Pardon, but some of us find that type of disregard rather offensive.

Quite recently, in places where environments are consider, I saw quite the opposite....life teaming in newness.

The civilized world has a real clue on the many areas of environmental issues--the rest is just poliTics as usual.

They best not put NASA on the backburners too much however, as rogue asteroids could present serious issues should the protective layers feel the wraths of.

<quoted text>No, all true as I post here. "On Thursday, a bankruptcy court will review a proposal that would return 93 percent of the missing money to customers like Mr. Desai. And the trustee who has submitted the proposal, James W.

"The broad push to make MF Global customers nearly whole, a goal now surprisingly within reach, is a remarkable turnaround from the firmís 2011 bankruptcy filing when such a recovery seemed impossible."..."The hearing on Thursday presents a turning point for several major players in the MF Global case, including the firmís trustees, creditors and former executives.
For one, Mr. Giddens late last year made peace with an overseas administrator tending to the firmís British unit and Louis J. Freeh, the MF Global trustee recovering money for creditors. The pact ended a bitter fight over access to limited resources.
And Jon S. Corzine, the former New Jersey governor who headed MF Global when it collapsed, can now claim some small degree of vindication. The European bonds at the center of a $6.3 billion bet by Mr. Corzine fully paid out when they matured in recent months."

Power companies were spending huge sums to implement clean coal technology until Obama made it clear that nothing they did would be good enough to satisfy the leftwing opposition to fossil fuels.

Clean coal technology was stopped dead in its tracks.

Watched a special investigative report about Benghazi tonight on Fox.

Being reminded again of the gross incompetency and deliberate lies on the part of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the wake of what must have been unimaginable fear and brutality for four Americans who were abandoned after their distress calls were ignored and their security removed distresses me greatly.

Hillary Clinton does not deserve to hold any office in the government. Her incompetency in the unbelievable timeline of documented events left four Americans dead.

This president does not deserve the office or the title representing our nation and our military. Levers available to him to prevent the deaths of these Americans on 9/11 were not pulled.

Because of Benghazi alone, I pray for the day to come when he is removed from office.

Selective Catalytic Reduction can achieve much higher reductions of NOx, but at significantly higher costs.
