Reason #93: Less Mercury

The EPA revealed a huge new set of "Mercury and Air Toxics Standards", or MATS, to drastically cut mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants.

Obama, naturally, and the clean(er) power industries are touting what a big accomplishment this is, but don't take their word for it - Scott Segal, a coal industry lobbyist, called MATS "the most extensive intervention into the power market and job market that EPA has ever attempted to implement." Sounds magnificent.
