The nation founders, the Lone Star State thrives

Turns out the worst state for carbon dioxide emissions per person isn't smoggy California or bustling New York, but a place famous for its big, clear skies: Wyoming.
In a story Feb. 19 about an interview with Sen. Mike Enzi that covered his views on addressing the national debt, The Associated Press reported erroneously a vote by Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., on an increase in the debt limit. Barrasso voted against the measure, not for it.
He said the EPA shouldn't impose rules that cripple coal-fired electricity by requiring still-unattainable greenhouse reductions, but, instead, should gradually implement rules as new technologies to cut carbon emissions become available.
"What he also says is we do have a responsibility to always do things better," Mead spokesman Renny MacKay said Thursday. "The coal industry has to be profitable if it's going to invest in the research and development of new technologies."
