Calling it a moral obligation, President Barack Obama unveiled the final version of his plan to dramatically cut emissions from U.S. power plants.
Republican governors from oil-and-gas rich states met in Texas Monday and said that new federal rules designed to cut global warming pollution from power plants by 30 percent by 2030 will kill jobs and growth.
A federal report says pollution that contributes to man-made climate change declined 4.5 percent nationwide last year, but Texas still leads in carbon dioxide emissions.
Americans throw away more trash per capita than any other country on the planet. That is a lot of trash. And where garbage piles up, there is a lot of gas. It is a matter of chemistry.
