Harnessing the awesome power of the word "clean"

As a resident of the wonderful Commonwealth of Kentucky, where not-especially-large metro areas such as Lexington and Louisville have the largest carbon footprint in the country (#1 and #5, respectively), mainly on account of appalling sprawl and our old friend King Coal--both of the not-clean and the ... non-clean variety.

Meanwhile, not all that far from these metro areas Big Coal, with the enthusiastic cooperation of politicians of both parties, is decapitating mountains, turning precious topsoil into sludge, and destroying watersheds on a daily basis.
