I like Romney's answer I'll quote here:
Energy is critical, and the President pointed out correctly that production of oil and gas in the U.S. is up -- but not due to his policies, in spite of his policies. Mr. President, all of the increase in natural gas and oil has happened on private land, not on government land. On government land, your administration has cut the number of permits and licenses in half.
If Iím President, Iíll double them and also get the oil from offshore in Alaska, and Iíll bring that pipeline in from Canada. And by the way, I like coal. Iím going to make sure we can continue to burn clean coal. People in the coal industry feel like itís getting crushed by your policies. I want to get America and North America energy independent so we can create those jobs.

So far, so good. But CCS has two major hurdles. First, it consumes energy--a lot of it. While estimates vary, a coal-fired power plant would have to burn roughly 25 percent more coal to handle carbon sequestration while producing the same amount of electricity. That would mean a vast expansion in mining, transportation costs and byproducts such as fly ash.

But that's the easy part. The harder challenge would be transporting and burying all of this high-pressure CO2. American Electric Power recently began a CCS project at its Mountaineer Plant in West Virginia. The operation captures a few hundred tons of CO2 a day. That's a start--but a typical 500-megawatt power plant produces about 10,000 tons daily. Collectively, America's coal-fired power plants generate 1.5 billion tons per year. Capturing that would mean filling 30 million barrels with liquid CO2 every single day--about one and a half times the volume of crude oil the country consumes. It took roughly a century to build the infrastructure we use to distribute petroleum products. Could we build an even bigger CCS infrastructure of pumps, pipelines and wells quickly enough to hit the ambitious targets the climate bill envisions? Serious plans to engineer--much less finance--such a vast project aren't even on the table.

Here's a final problem: We don't know if the gas will stay buried. We could easily spend hundreds of billions injecting CO2 into the earth only to have it start leaking out again in a few decades. None of this means that CCS is impossible to achieve. But it is a dangerous gamble to assume that it will become technically and economically feasible any time soon."

So the technology sadly isn't there yet to make coal "clean." Yeah, if I were Mitt or you, pushing "clean coal", I'd be embarrassed too. LOL As much as some of us want to be able to use our massive coal deposits now and to stop funding bad guys who hate us, the devil's in the details. It's okay! I'm hoping you just didn't know any better.

Absolutely not, you know me too well to believe that I'd do anything disrespectful to you.. You know what I meant, that Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao and other maniacs like that are a uniquely evil bunch of people, and so saying someone is "Just like Hitler" is going to be a tall order indeed. Thankfully, very few people are "Just Like Hitler"...

Obama target by Levite Priest

President Barak Obama is an Left Democrat which mean he side Aryan, Vampire and Watchers but there a problem? Pure Aryan, Watcher and Vampire are B Rh negative or Aryan Vampire Sun Race. These Zerubbabel and Virgin Mary race; however Barak Obama is AB Rh negative, Just like President Clinton and George Bush all who were target with man made viruses causes cancerous mode and Leukemia. Semitic people are behind it all they have enough man made viruses to kill everyone in this country and they target our US president regularly. They target me too but if die the will be hell to pay and Lilith will see to that.

B Rh negative is the Virgin Mary or Lilith Sumeria Aryan race or Vampire or Gnostic Christians, Annakki Sumeria, Persia and Tamil people and Aztec and Mayan Sun priest.

AB Rh negative is Joseph and Levite priest Babylonian Semitic race or Werewolves or Pharasees

Barak Obama was target by man made viruses Because he was AB Rh negative so he was a traitor Pharasee or Levite Priest or Semitic priest which Levite, Brahmin and Wahabbee Imans!

Levite Priest have targeted President Bush, Clinton and Obama with man made viruses to influence US police toward Israel in the Middle and they been doing so since creation of Israel and may been responsible JFK Addision Disease severity while in the White House.

You just don't know just how far religious conservatives will go to influence US policy in this Country. They are dirty!

info:

After what was widely considered a clear-cut victory during the first presidential debate last Wednesday, Romney stormed ahead of President Obama by 2 percentage points in a national poll released yesterday, winning support from 49 percent of voters nationwide, compared to Obamaís 47.

ďItís a real indicator that Governor Romney had a good debate and has at least for the short term changed the perception of the race,Ē said pollster Scott Rasmussen.

Going into the debate, Obama led by two points, according to Rasmussenís daily presidential tracking poll.

So it was more of a default win. Obama will probably do better in the next two, after he practices more.
Or if they allow him a teleprompter.
