Coal Plant Dispute

It's the first ever coal to liquid facility in the nation. Tonight the Blackhawk Sierra Club, a group aimed at protecting the environment is raising the red flag on the project. They say liquid coal releases almost double the greenhouse gas emissions as regular gasoline. They also say the process requires large amounts of water and is an expensive energy gamble we shouldn't take.

Before construction can begin, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency must make sure there's not an abundance of CO2 emissions.
