Amazing how the pollution goes down when the economy tanks and all the factories move to China. Environmentalists are praying for even higher unemployment. In fact, they wish humans would just die off so that animals and trees could own North America.

This news is really sad. My friends and I left Southeast Ohio because of the depressed economy. Now that the environmental Nazis have had their way, they have spread economic gloom to the rest of the state. A nearly 20 percent decline in electric usage is not a sign of a recession this great Depression levels of economic decline. However, the environmental extremists allow China to build 50 large coal fired power plant per a year, yet we hear no whining or sniveling from their camp. Environmentalist are really are a bunch of Marxist-Leninists luddites. They are only happy if the common man suffers a real decline in living standards.

This is a big victory for the air we breath. Big shout out to the environmentalist; like the Sierra Club who stayed the course, Thank you!
