Clean Coal Conundrum
In this photo taken Oct. 22, 2013, heat exchangers are in place at Denbury Resources Inc.'s, Tinsley Field facility in Tinsley, Miss. Denbury Resources hopes to bring new life to old oil fields by pumping in carbon dioxide to force additional oil to the surface. The nearby Southern Compnay's Kemper County power plant, America’s newest, most expensive coal-fired power plant is hailed as one of the cleanest on the planet, thanks to government-backed technology that removes carbon dioxide and keeps it out of the atmosphere. Once the carbon is stripped away, it will be used to do something that is not so green at all – extract oil. Denbury is one company that uses this process. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)
