Read the editorial in today's Messenger-Inquirer about the problems at O.M.U. How did they get in that shape?

It all started when they stopped their agreement with Kenergy to share power and decided to start selling on the open market.A decision made solely by a select few and now about to be paid for by many!

Kenergy? You mean KU.

The lower-than-usual natural gas market and Obama's anti-coal regulation is the cause. KU, Kenergy, Big Rivers... all have just released or will increase in the next 6 months.

Big rivers may shut down one of its plants when century ends its contract next August, if they don't work out some kind of deal. Gas is to blame mainly not the EPA. The newest EPA mandates were struck down by the Supreme Court so they don't apply. It's the gas prices that are so low that are causing coal prices to rise and coal plants to either shut down or close their doors.

Weren'tp there already a set of regulations that crippled the coal industry before these last mandates? That's a question, not a statement.

They just made it a little tougher to operate older units without scrubbers. The new regs would have killed a lot of jobs.

Any coal plant is in trouble right now. When gas prices go back up the burden will ease and these plants will stay open. Gas was so abundant because of the mild winter we had last year. We need an freezing winter this time around. It'll help us out.

Gas has been getting cheaper everywhere. Soon it will make sense for gas to replace coal in all power plants. It's not a temporary fluctuation in prices. It's caused by newer ways to get more gas more easily. There is a lot more gas available than anyone thought. The only reason it's not replacing gasoline in cars is that it would be too hard for all the gas stations to convert.

In any case, coal is likely to be used less and less, not only because of how cheap gas is getting, but also because gas is cleaner and the government wants everything to be cleaner.

Merry Christmas buddy. You need to find someone to show you some love. There is too much hate in your heart. I feel sorry for you.

HAHA. I got the answers to all the problems. THATS if someone in higher athority would listen to me. I can ger FREE Electricity. Enough to run a whole town or maybe a section of a town with power. Theirs other sources and other ways to get electricity without paying a high price for electricity. The answer lyes with. HOW is electricity produced and HOW is electricity made? Evidently OMU is not updated enough to think about that?
