Congress: Stand Up to King Coal

Fellow CCANers and I had an exciting morning last Thursday, as we planned to dump one ton of coal at the United States Capitol in the Lower Senate Park to protest the legislation on the Senate floor that would allow for 10 billion dollars in direct federal loans for coal to liquid development. FYI: Most of the Senators that support the bill hail from coal industry states.

Soon after the set-up began, the Capitol Police tried to disband the press conference by claiming the flammable qualities of coal could severely put the members of Congress in harms way
