The dirtiest of fuels is taking a beating this week. Yet another proposed coal plant in the US wascancelled due to concerns about carbon dioxide emissions.
In October, the Kansas Department of Health rejected a coal generating plant due to concerns about climate change. Then another coal plant proposal was nixed in Washington State based on worries about the carbon impacts to the atmosphere.
It seems this regulatory shift around carbon emissions has not been lost on the coal mongers of the world.
