Group blog on coal and climate change:
The aim of this project is to spread the message that coal and unconventional fossil fuels, such as the oil sands, pose an unacceptable risk to humanity. This is because of the degree to which burning them increases the risk of catastrophic or runaway climate change.

All topics relating to coal and unconventional fossil fuels are within the scope of this project. For instance, that includes air pollution, mountaintop removal mining, water contamination, carbon capture and storage, social movements, legal issues, and more.

Comments would be welcome on the design, layout, and content. I am also looking for new contributors.

But clean coal seems like such a great idea! /sarcasm

Great work.

There is already an entry on carbon capture and storage (CCS).

As for the page itself, it is running on WordPress and the Thesis theme, with bits of CSS borrowed from about a dozen other Thesis-using websites. There is also a bit of custom code, such as for the Gravatars being used to distinguish authors from one another.

One thing that should probably be built into the site is a super-accessible primer for people new to the issue.
