EPA Stalls Mtn Top Removal

The Obama Administration and the EPA in particular are blocking or delaying permits that cause unacceptable damage to Appalachian forests, streams etc. If permits are denied Santee Cooper and other utlities might find coal harder and more expensive to come by....a good reason to implement efficiency and decrease enegy demand.

The EPA has also sent a proposal to the White House that labels CO2 a danger to public welfare. The proposed Santee Cooper coal plant would emit over 8 million tons of CO2 annually.
