Call it “Geo-blogging,” if you’d like.

Here’s an interactive Google Map we’ve started to keep track of the PR, advertising and lobbying efforts being undertaken by “Americans for Balanced Energy Choices,” (ABEC) as they spend a reported $40 million on behalf of the coal industry to sell the virtues of “clean coal” in the run-up to the 2008 Presidential election.

If you would like to contribute to the map or have information on ABEC activities in your region, please drop us an email at: desmogblog [at] gmail.com and we’ll add your entry.
