FERC Rejects Rick Perry’s Plan to Prop up Struggling Coal and Nuclear Plants

The U.S. Secretary of Energy received a lump of coal this Christmas. There are several articles in today’s news reporting that the FERC has rejected Rick Perry’s plan to help out struggling coal and nuclear plants. This is good news, as it shows that the FERC is acting responsibly and rationally by not giving into political pressures to save the dying coal industry. Natural Gas is the new king of the energy jungle, with renewables coming up not far behind. This is also good news for the environment. Thank you, FERC.
