Just Add Sunglasses

Apparently, the coal industry in the US has launched an ad campaign for coal (the world's most polluting fossil fuel). The surprising part is the similarity to the "Joe Camel" campaign used by cigarette companies to promote cigarette smoking, especially to teenagers.

Our friends at Reality contrast the claims of the add with the facts. The also remark that perhaps "clean coal" is about as believable as a "healthy cigarette".
