The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the EPA must force power plans to protect aquatic species, even if it's expensive. Among those responsible for bringing the law suit are six U.S. states. According to the article:
The appeals court previously rejected arguments that some species are nuisances and require eradication. The court had also dismissed the claim that other species respond to population losses by increasing their reproduction.
Can there be anyone left at the EPA who actually cares about the environment? Surely they've all been driven out by the frustration of having to write statements like those above.

There's something seriously wrong when the court has to tell a government agency to do its damn job.
