The "Washington Post" today looks at the growing political and legal opposition to coal-burning plants for electricity generation in the U.S. Seems coal has a reputation as a source of air pollution and greenhouse gases. Hmm.
One leading opponent of the rush to coal-burning is Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. But there's even opposition growing in red states like Florida and Montana.
Course the U.S. could give up all coal-burning and China's coal addicition would soon make up for it. And China's coal-burning is our problem, too. If they insist on committing suicide by CO2, they're taking the rest of the planet with 'em.
