There is a surprising editorial in the West Virginia Gazette-Mail:
"This topic has special resonance in West Virginia, a fossil fuel treasure trove. And what happens here has a special impact on the future of the planet. Pollution controls seeking to reduce global warming are sure to impose tighter restrictions on coal and natural gas. West Virginia's energy should not be squandered on a shortsighted attempt to protect the status quo, or to discredit science in the public's eyes, or to vilify the Obama administration's very reasonable proposal that new coal-fired power plants be required to limit their greenhouse gas emissions. West Virginia should put its energy into getting people ready to work in a world after coal."
