ID Gov. Blasts President For Trying To Limit Coal
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter is blasting President Barack Obama for seeking to limit coal-fired power plant emissions while not allowing sufficient timber cutting to tame big Western wildfires, another greenhouse gas source. Otter told reporters in Utah this week that Idaho wildfires send more carbon dioxide skyward than is released to produce coal-generated electricity used by the state's 1.5 million residents.
