The war on coal-fired power plants

If you automatically assume that coal-fired power plants are everywhere and always bad, you might want to read this editorial from the Wall Street Journal. It laments the costly and over-reaching changes that the Obama administration is about to impose on electric utilities. 

This move is to limit mercury emissions, even though it hardly is cost-effective. Here is one of the astounding facts to surface:

The proposal was obviously rushed, with numerous errors like overstating U.S. mercury emissions by a factor of 1,000. The word in Washington is that the openly politicized process unsettled even the EPA's career staff.

Get out your wallets, consumers, to shell out $$$ for this unnecessary action.
