OK, so we're back to the topic of energy.

The Atlantic offers a review of the evolving landscape of energy sources:



The lure of cheap natural gas has led utilities to shutter aging and carbon-spewing coal-fired power plants in favor of much cleaner burning gas. Pending federal emissions regulations make it unlikely that any new coal plants will get built in the years ahead while state renewable energy mandates and the declining cost of solar and wind technologies have triggered a boom in green power.


That trend is likely to continue in the decades ahead.
