Wyoming has decided that it can sue other States that somehow harm the coal industry:
A new Wyoming law that sets aside money to sue states whose policies hamper the use of Wyoming coal was passed in part with Colorado in mind, the sponsor said.
The bill recently signed into law allocates $1.2 million to the governor’s office for lawsuits against states with laws and regulations that impede Wyoming’s ability to export coal or force the early closures of coal-fired plants in the state. Wyoming is the country’s No.1 coal producer and the move to more renewable energy because of dropping prices of wind and solar power and concerns about climate change has battered the Cowboy State’s coal industry.
One of the major problems with the so-called ‘conservative’ party is they’re pretty damned dumb. This would be like the meat industry deciding to sue vegans for refusing to eat meat. It’s just stupid.
It wouldn’t be the first time Wyoming sued to protect its coal industry. The Casper Star Tribune reports that Wyoming and Montana have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to consider its lawsuit against the state of Washington for denying a permit for a coal-export terminal.
Industry simply doesn’t care about the future of Earth habitability and couches their concerns around profits and jobs while expected wage-slavers to continue making them rich. Stupidly, there are hordes of people still lining up for these dirty jobs. If it appears that virtually everyone is working against a habitable Earth, you’d be quite right. The rape of the planet continues.
Not particularly informative for the informed, but for those that aren’t:
There’s a lot of false hope in all of the promises of ‘net-zero’, fixing climate change, and the future habitability of the planet. The necessary attention and care to fundamentals is still absent, fixing the planet actually means fixing the human race and the insatiable greed that comes with our species.
