    New power plant mercury limits

    Counterpoint to "throw the bums out."

    Americans of both parties breathing cleaner air thanks to good government.

    Not all bums.


    "Despite federal limits on emissions of mercury from other sources, such as waste incinerators, there have been no limits on coal-fired power plants, which the EPA says constitute the single largest source of mercury emissions.

    "These standards rank among the three or four most significant environmental achievements in the EPA's history," said John Walke, clean air director of the National Resources Defense Council. "This rule making represents a generational achievement."

    "The new regulations are among the most wide-reaching to come from the EPA during Barack Obama's administration. They include separate limits for mercury emissions, acid gasses, and other pollutants from several metals."

    I dig it, however I doubt the EPA has enough regulatory force to drive 100% compliance.
    good first step though.
