Small victory for coal?

E.P.A. Ruling Could Speed Up Approval of Coal Plants

Officials weighing federal applications by utilities to build new coal-fired power plants cannot consider their greenhouse gas output, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency ruled late Thursday.

One can only hope since many of these plants have been on the shelf longer than Bush has been in office.
