    This one as well..http://www.examiner.com/a-1810068~EPA_board_to_review_Navajo_coal_plant_air_permit.html?cid=rss-Arizona_Headlines

    I am all for these reviews and slow downs/stops of plants, but this administration better have some backup plans in place that can squeeze some juice. The best way for him not to get reelected would be to propagate a bunch of brown/blackouts across the country.
