Officer: Iraq effort 'could still fail'
U.S. commanders' assessment presents bleaker views of war.
The generals pulled back from suggestions that positive trends in Iraq could allow a drawdown of U.S. troops late this year.
"I think that this could still fail," the officer said at the briefing, referring to the American enterprise in Iraq. "It's much more likely to succeed, but it could still fail."



Round One in fight against proposed Bexar coal powerplant The plant [at Calaveras Lake] would be the first coal plant built in Texas since CPS Energy opened its last coal plant in 1992. Coal fell out of fashion in the 1990s because cleaner-burning natural gas was abundant and cheap.

As I say every so often with great sadness and sarcasm, who cares that the powerplants already at Calaveras Lake emit mercury and other toxic substances into the air which typically blows across the southeast and east sections of San Antonio and Bexar County? Kids and adults with little political power live in those areas, and if they're virtually powerless due to their lack of political donations to fatcats, why should the politicians care whether the East County Kids get shot full o' mercury?

"Out of the entire electric industry, coal-fired power plants contribute 96% of sulfur dioxide emissions, 93% of nitrogen oxide emissions, 88% of carbon dioxide emissions, and 99% of mercury emissions." -Sierra Club

States challenge powerplant mercury-emission allowances A coalition of 11 states filed a lawsuit yesterday challenging a new federal rule that allows coal-fired power plants to buy pollution credits to avoid lowering their mercury emissions.
