Kate’s going to have a longer story about this soon, but just to get the word out quickly: the Sierra Club just won a huge victory before the EPA Environmental Appeals Board. Basically it will require all new coal plants to use Best Available Control Technology (BACT) for CO2.

As I said, Kate will get into the details later, but the top line is: nobody’s going to invest a red dime in new coal for probably the next ten years, at least.
