“Expensive regulation: EPA coal emissions plan will be a job killer” was the headline in a Times News “guest editorial” written by Jennifer Stefano, the Pennsylvania State Director for Americans for Prosperity. Americans for Prosperity is an anti-environmental pro-business group which, I believe, would like to bring back breaker boys to pick the slate out of the coal. The editorial is full of unsubstantiated assertions and dubious statistics.
Here’s another headline for another guest editorial: “Expensive deregulation: Ending EPA coal emissions controls will affect unborn children.” Yes, that is one of the results of mercury pollution. I’d send a guest editorial to the Times News to accompany that headline, but I doubt if the paper would use it.
