During last night’s first presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney for the 2012 US election, Romney said he liked coal and that he would make sure that we continue burning dirty and climate-killing coal.

MITT ROMNEY: "And by the way, I like coal. I’m going to make sure we continue to burn clean coal. People in the coal industry feel like it’s getting crushed by your policies. I want to get America and North America energy independent, so we can create those jobs."
