Bold Nebraska director Jane Kleeb appeared on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” on Tuesday, July 3, to discuss the media’s handling of President Obama’s rollout of new rules from the Environmental Protection Agency that will reduce carbon emissions from the nation’s coal-fired power plants by 30% by 2030.

Nebraska currently derives over 80% of its power from dirty coal, which is burned at facilities including OPPD’s North Omaha station, NPPD’s Gerald Gentleman Station near Sutherland and Sheldon Station near Hallam, the Nebraska City Station Unit 2, Whelan Energy Center in Hastings, Lon D. Wright Power Plant in Fremont, and Platte Generating Station in Grand Island. Lincoln Electric System also has partial interests in coal plants in Wyoming and Iowa.
