There’s not a lot of truly interesting news out there today, so as a token of apology take this commercial lambasting the notion of clean coal, as directed by the Coen Brothers. Some filmmakers spend significant time making commercials between features, but that’s never been the case for the Coens.

I’m not going to get into the meat of the for/against argument here; I’ll leave that for people who know a lot more about the ramifications of clean coal tech. I do wish we had the comments re-enabled for this one. I like to think they’d easily trump the arguments already taking place on YouTube. Alternately, I’d be even happier to link for you “World Cinema”, the Coen’s fantastic contribution to Chacun son cinema, which was left off the DVD release of that omnibus effort.

Thanks to the lovely yt for the heads-up.
