National Academy of Sciences on the future of coal production

We've discussed issues with the National Academy of Sciences on stem cells and on patents; there's an interesting discussion of the NAS on coal.

[As noted elsewhere, the National Academy report on patents was really by NAS/STEP and the committee (unlike that of the NAS in 1918) didn't include many scientists or patent lawyers. The handling in the NAS/STEP report of the "patent quality" issue was not definitive, with lack of firmness something that seems to plague the coal report also.]
