According to this white paper from the Clean Air Task Force, "Coal-fired power generation is today one of the planet's most environmentally destructive activities," and that "we need to change how we use it ... as quickly as possible."
"Taming Coal" also acknowledges that we are unlikely to be able to live without coal for some time to come. Accordingly, it stresses the critical importance of transitioning coal use to technologies that minimize health-related air emissions and allow for the removal and storage of carbon dioxide, and to begin to demonstrate and scale up those technologies on a commercial basis as soon as possible.
