Coal fired power no longer a sure thing...

One of the regional power companies that generates power in Washinghton, Utah and a few other western states has canceled plans to be build any new coal-fired generating stations for the next 10 years. Not because they're poisoning the environment, but because the costs are becoming unclear with the threat of some sort of cost for GHG emissions coming and alternative energy standards coming into effect. See GristMill or the original article, "PacifiCorp labels coal a no-go for new plants."
