EPA isn’t too fond of Holcomb 2 plan; everybody feigns surprise
The Environmental Protection Agency announced Friday that it isn’t
thrilled with Kansas’ proposed plan to allow Sunflower Electric Power
Corp. to build a second coal-burning power plant in Holcomb. We know,
you’re all stunned at this shocking and unforeseen development, so take a
deep breath before reading further.
HA! Total JK! Nobody is surprised by this. The latest episode in the Holcomb 2 soap opera was
practically assured months ago, as the Kansas Department of Health and
Environment hurriedly approved the plant’s required air-quality permit
before the end of the year, when stricter air-quality rules went into effect.
