Big News: Yesterday's press conference by SWEPCO to announce the appeal of an Arkansas Court of Appeals decision to revoke the permit for the coal-fired power plant in Hempstead County is all over the news this morning.  You can read my account below, but you MUST read Ernest Dumas' column that will appear in Thursday's edition of the Times.  Very thoughtful, as always. 

Here's a rundown of the coverage: AP, the Hope Star, Arkansas Business, GreenAR by the Day, and an incredibly slanted article from Reuters, which repeats all of Chodak's arguments and offers no quotes from opponents.    


Gored: Former Vice President Al Gore responds to critics' falsehoods regarding the cost of the American Clean Energy and Security Act passed by the US House last week.  Kudos again to Vic Snyder for voting for this bill.   

Tips: Always feel free to email me at gerard@arktimes.com.  Thanks for staying tuned.
