Beebe feels the heat

Posted By on Tue, Sep 23, 2008 at 6:47 AM

Might Gov. Mike Beebe's honeymoon be ended by his Global Warming Commission? Brummett analyzes the proposition today.

I say he's not at risk. The Commission isn't likely to upset the Electric Co-op's apple cart and put the environment ahead of another coal-fired power plant. (Nor is the Beebe administration likely to put the environment ahead any industrial development desired by the lobby branch of government, where Beebe's power and friends lie.)  As Brummett says, there's a reason an air-fouling power company chose Arkansas as a site for a coal-fired power plant -- "we're backward."
