Clean Coal Anyone?

One of the joys in life—real joy, mind you—is to know to whom to go for information you’d like but don’t have. Certainly googling can help. However, if you want the most balanced and well-considered “take,” go to someone.

For me, there are many areas in which my interest far exceeds my knowledge, let alone wisdom. Not to list the plethora [love that word!] but two areas are of interest.

You’d guess the first one…learn more from fishing guides. That’s uncompromised and unrelenting.

The other is to learn something about Climate Change. One of the specific areas in which my knowledge is beneath the surface [both reality and metaphor] is in coal. Turns out the best go-to guy is a fishing buddy and one of those whom I could blame if the novels didn’t flow correctly [e.e. an editor!]. He is retired from a coal-mining company. He knows. He really knows. One of my questions has to do with “clean coal.” My friend’s take is the economic risk is considerable for that to happen comet-speed. However, this morning he sent me an article that brings helpful information. I link it, in case you’re interested. If not and you’re more interested in fishing, talk to me in a week. For then I’ll know quite a bit more about how to catch the fish-delicacy…called a Spring Chinook Salmon.


About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.
