A Coal-to-Liquids Plant for Wyoming
It’s been done before — Nazi Germany produced liquid fuels from coal during the war, and so did South Africa under apartheid. But it’s not very efficient, not very cheap, and it’s a dirty process that produces a lot of greenhouse gases. And in the case of a proposed project near Medicine Bow National Forest in Wyoming, it would also cause air pollution and use up precious water resources. That’s why Friends of the Earth opposes this reckless investment, and it’s a reason why we need to continue pushing for carbon capture and storage as an essential part of a clean energy future.
