Have been trying to ignore the absurdity of the AEP response to the Obama climate tantrum, but have seen it repeated once too often this week.
The West Virginia Gazette reports:
Officials from American Electric Power, one of the nation’s largest coal-burning utilities, praised Obama for offering a “balanced approach” but said the exact carbon dioxide limits and the compliance timelines are a key piece of information that’s not yet known.
“As with any plan, the details will make the difference,” said AEP spokeswoman Melissa McHenry. She added that, “our industry can continue to achieve meaningful reductions and minimize economic pain” if the administration provides “maximum flexibility.”
