Jamestown Power Plant

Expect controversy, litigation and the like in the matter of the proposed new coal-fired power plant, as discussed in this Post-Journal article.

It's an interesting proposal, and one fraught with unanswerable questions. It pits environmental and commercial and quality of life issues against each other, sometimes including internal struggles within each faction of issues. Clean coal is certainly a more environmentally-acceptable choice than traditional coal, but while some may applaud that choice, others will be against any fossil fuel-based system. It's bound to be contentious, on economic, environmental and social fronts.
