When President Obama was a senator he spoke about his goal " bankrupt the coal industry."
The EPA has now mandated that coal generated electric plants (Jamestown BPU) must reduce the CO2 emission to their goal or be shut down - a goal most impossible to attain.
Recently the EPA published the "clean air" ratings for New York State. The Western NY counties improved from an "F" to "C." That included Erie County. Only Chautauqua County was held at "F" !! The air in all of Western New York is better than ours ?
Have you noticed "how horrible" our air has become?
Maybe it's because the EPA recognized we have Jamestown BPU (taxpayer owned), and NRG in Dunkirk had produced our electricity by burning coal in the county and should be shut down?
