Utah Supreme Court blocks coal plant

You can put a fork in a gigantic new coal fired power plant proposed for rural Sugard, Utah, because it’s done. Yesterday the Utah Supreme Court struck a major blow against the plant by ordering it to start back at square one in the pollution permit application process.

It’s because trying to do “clean coal” (a misnomer if there ever was one) was just too darned expensive and complicated for the developers, so their plan was to do it the dirty old way. But the Utah Supremes said no.
