Our power usage is going down. As time goes on we will need less and less of their "dirty" power. The right wing needs to note, the law was passed in 2007. Who was the governor in 2007? Oh yea, it was our mr Conservative Tpaw.

That makes sense,because who's interested in hearing the truth in a court battle? That would be like letting science prove global warming,instead of actors dressed like scientists.

Lignite coal is the dirtiest coal, followed by eastern coal...with Wyoming / Montana hard coal the least dirty. No wonder the environmental groups want to get involved.....

looks like we're on the road to being another California. How easily we forget how Enron took advantage of them on the electric power business.

That is a shame. Environmental groups are great at taking things into account that many people refuse to acknowledge. To many folks economics is all that matters. They lack a long term strategy.

The coal in North Dakota is high in sulphur and high in sodium, thus making it the "dirtiest" or most polluting coal, mined anywhere in the U.S.

"...the case "will not be enhanced in any significant way" by adding environmental interests as parties." But apparently having utilities, two coal companies and a lignite trade group in the case adds a whole lot. Just guess which way this case has already been decided.
