You don’t usually hear so much about coal, unless you’re naughty and get a stocking full of it for Christmas. But lately the fossil fuel has been getting a bunch of attention. Today a few thousand young folks in dress clothes are converging to protest at the coal-fired Capitol Power Plant in Washington DC and recently the Coen brothers have turned their satirical sights on clean coal, directing the first of many ads for the Reality Coalition, a consortium of heavy hitter environmental groups headed by the Alliance for Climate Protection. The spots were produced and designed by Crispin Porter + Bogusky, the guys behind the “Truth” campaign.

This has been covered to death since the spot started airing last Thursday, but I really wanted to use this headline.
