Kansas Fights Back
Iberdrola’s Krista Gordon took a few moments off from her work building wind power in western Kansas to point out to NewEnergyNews this week that Kansas is emerging as a national leader in the building of New Energy and the fight against dirty coal. And it is doing so without legislative mandates. No state Renewable Electricity Standard (RES). A waning federal production tax credit (PTC), thanks to a recalcitrant U.S. Senate.
What is driving Kansas? The leadership of its governor and lieutenant governor and its citizens' good sense.
Give this video a minute to warm up and see if the story of Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius’ fight to stop dirty coal in her state doesn’t warm the cockles of your heart. (From Fireside Production and Earthjustice via YouTube.)
