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.
