Readers who have been with me for a while already know something about Exelon, but now there's even more to know. It will be a while before I've digested all this, but I thought I would give you a heads-up:
The President's Utility by Ed Lasky at Capital Research.
"Once upon a time, Exelon executives invested in a politician with great promise at an early stage in his career. That politician then dedicated himself to bankrupting industries based on coal, including mining and coal-based utilities, and one company above all stands to benefit greatly from his agenda: Exelon."
Meanwhile, Sierra Club activists are hard at work . . .
With the "coal rush" of new proposed plants winding down, the Environmental Law Program has begun targeting the 500-plus existing coal-fired power plants in the U.S. for retirement. Many of these plants were "grandfathered" and exempted from clean air laws. Our legal team has begun engaging numerous plants nationwide in strategic legal actions, forcing them to internalize their true environmental costs, which in many cases will lead to a smart decision -- to retire the plant.
it's just that it will bankrupt them
because they're going to be charged a huge sum...
This map [of PROPOSED coal plants] is comprised of data collected and maintained by the Sierra Club Environmental Law Program ...part of the Club's ongoing campaign to wean the United States off coal, a dirty fossil fuel.
- Red markers: active or upcoming plants.
- Yellow markers: progressing plants.
