    I recently read somewhere that there are two new coal power plants being built in Ohio, to be operational by 2010 and 2012, where the Co2 emissions will be captured and buried before they reach the smokestack. Does anyone on the Board from Ohio have any information on this that can be posted? The U.S. is setting on a ton of coal that could make this nation energy independent. If the technology has been developed that would prevent the Co2 emissions from reaching the air, would this not solve a lot of our energy-dependence problem?
