Reality Coalition vs. Frosty the Coal Man

The coal lobby is hitting back to tout its message against an alliance (the Reality Coalition) against clean coal falsehoods by launching a viral campaign: Christmas caroling coal lumps.

The lobby’s more traditional reaction to the Reality Coalition’s campaign is in this press release.

The clean coal lobby, or American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity launched the cuddly lumps on its site AmericasPower.org with all the requisite social media “Share This” links so you can send them along to your friends.

After you dress the carolers in hats and scarves, they will sing six different Christmas classics including “Frosty the Coal Man,” “Clean Coal Night,” “Abundant, Affordable,” “O’ Technology,” “Deck the Halls (with clean coal!),” and “Jingle Bells.”

Here’s holiday cheer that gets delivered to your friends:

I just discovered the Clean Coal Carolers. These jolly ol’ souls give new meaning to getting a lump of coal in your stocking. In fact, coal is the stocking stuffer of choice this year. It’s abundant, affordable and cleaner than ever. The Clean Coal Carolers are the holiday season’s hottest singing sensations – and they’re coming live to your computer. Happy clean coal caroling!
