    Excellent news. But I wonder what Nevada’s total
    carbon footprint is now. Pennsylvania’s is huge.

  2. Alan,

    I don’t think it is particularly large, at least for coal plants. There are just two big coal plants, if I am not mistaken. The third, the big, dirty, obsolescent Mojave plant, was retired about a year ago.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
