"Pollution Pact"---Politics As Usual

So, when you want coal to go away, can't really afford natural gas, and oil just won't do, how do you provide electricity?

Not Nukes.

And by the way, we like getting re-elected, so car-exhaust regs aren't here, either.

Nuclear power, which generates no greenhouse gas emissions, was deemed too divisive to include in an energy and climate-change platform that 11 Midwestern governors endorsed Thursday.

...nuclear power was "too controversial" to include in the regional plan, Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle said. Also absent: regulations that would regulate emissions of global warming gases from vehicle tailpipes.

So the ways to make pollution disappear?

1) Squash industrials.
2) Pray for lotsa wind.
