Letter: Shame on Rocky Mountain for solar fee 20.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Last summer, I installed solar panels on my home to produce my own electricity. By doing so, I lessened my demand for coal-fired energy from Rocky Mountain Power and am making my small contribution to preserving our environment.

To increase their profit margin, they want to penalize me for my investment in clean-energy production. Currently, RMP relies on burning coal to prod...

Federal judge: Let the greenhouse gasses flow into Minnesota 18.4.2014 MinnPost
Minnesota can't restrict coal plants in North Dakota,  MPR's Elizabeth Dunbar reports . Our state's Next Generation Energy Act forbade coal imports from places like NoDak without carbon offsets for the resulting greenhouse gasses; U.S. Judge Susan Richard Nolan said that violates the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution as a state restriction on interstate trade.

There are rugs spread out, bunting, and several green gazebos. People are sitting on folding camp stools, and knowledgeable locals are keeping an eye on the Sussex skies for the first sign of rain. Only the placards and banners strike the wrong note. Because the villagers and visitors gathered together are here not to raise money for the church roof, but to try to stop a plan to drill for fossil fuels under their homes and fields. That was my first experience of the protest at Balcombe , last summer. It's been a long journey since then, via five hours in the cells of Crawley police station , months of preparing our case, and finally six days at the magistrates court in ...
