The Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization is dedicated to perpetuating the myth that coal can be used in a clean and sustainable manner.


To be a public relations tool for industry for the advancement of misinformation intended to manipulate the public to believe that clean utilization of coal is possible by hijacking the credibility of universities, industries, foundations, and government organizations.


  • To advance propaganda about technologies for clean utilization of coal as both a dependable, low cost source of energy
  • To hinder the development of real solutions to mitigate carbon dioxide emissions and addressing global climate change
  • To distort public understanding of a clean energy future
  • To train a motivated, talented public relations team capable of selling the deception of clean coal to the American public
