Natural gas industries in other states and the arithmetic of the Electoral College, Dodson writes, leaves Wyoming coal as a nonissue for the national political parties.
Bebout says the letter about Moneta Divide gas- and oilfield “was sent by my secretary and contained misinformation and I corrected her.”
Feds are on track to approve a 4,250-well oilfield expansion, which will boost revenues and add millions of tons of greenhouse gasses to a changing climate.
Utility would retire one Jim Bridger Plant unit early in 2023, another in 2028 and two Naughton Plant units in 2025.
Wyoming politicians love to talk about the primacy of free enterprise and the private sector. But to protect coal they rule like socialists.
