for the North Star Annual Meeting, to be held at the Lake of the Woods School on October 5, 2012. Registration and dinner will be from 5 to 6 pm, with the Annual Meeting beginning at 6 pm. The Sloughgrass band will play prior to the meeting for your entertainment. Hope to see you there!
The EPA, in a proposed New Source Performance Standard for greenhouse gases (GHG), has effectively outlawed coal as a fuel source for the next generation of power plants. The proposed standards would require new coal plants to install carbon capture and storage, a technology that is not yet commercially available and is prohibitively expensive. This would eliminate coal as a fuel source for future generation and reduce America’s fuel diversity. Tell EPA you oppose this proposed GHG standard for power plants.
