Savor the ironies:

TXU Corp., the largest Texas electricity producer, said its plan to build $10 billion of coal-fueled power generation in the state appears "consistent with" a business group’s proposal to curb global warming by capping carbon-dioxide emissions.

Does this mean that TXU is psychotic or that the corporate U.S. Climate Action Partnership is utterly toothless? You be the judge.
