"I had no idea that so little progress had been made until I looked at these data." The whole thing is seriously discouraging because it means that despite huge policy efforts, like the Paris accord, the power sector looks almost identical to its 1990s counterpart.
Morano on Gore's flip-flop in support of 'clean coal': 'This is the camel's nose in the tent, metaphorically, he is trying to make the climate agenda sound painless. He is claiming in this 1992 video clip that coal is no problem. He claims to the people in Kentucky and Tennessee that they need have no fear. But just 15 or so years later, President Obama comes in and says we will bankrupt the coal industry and his administration comes in and starts literally shutting down the coal industry because of the climate agenda."
"Gore was deceiving the people back in 1992 and knowing full well that he is wanted to move the agenda forward. Trying to get the Rio earth summit started which would lead to the Kyoto protocol which would lead to the UN Paris climate agreement. The Rio summit in 1992 started all UN framework. Gore was no dummy, he knows what he's doing telling people in Tennessee and Kentucky that they have no worries about coal. If you could go back in time, you'd say 'All of you have to worry.' Coal was very much under threat, regardless of what Al Gore was claiming at the time."
