Mitt Romney spoke at a rally this morning in Craig, CO – the heart of coal country – another indication of his close ties to the fossil fuel industry. [Denver Post]

Despite Romney’s latest attacks on clean energy initiatives, the solar industry is flourishing in his home state. Solar energy capacity in Massachusetts has more than doubled in the past two years, generating enough power to power almost 16,000 homes. [Boston Globe]

Moms Clean Air Force delivered over 8,000 comments to EPA officials in support of its proposed carbon pollution standard, which would reduce carbon emissions and help the 7 million American children that suffer from asthma. [ThinkProgress]

Bill White of the Energy Future Coalition shatters long-held assumptions that renewable energy is expensive, unreliable and insufficient in supply. [Grist]

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity has spoken out against the EPA’s proposed safeguards against carbon pollution, calling it “the most expensive rule the EPA has ever written for coal-fueled power plants.” But a Federal Reserve report shows ACCCE member companies to have $17.8 billion cash on hand – more than the $11 billion that all 220 plants in the country will have to pay to meet the new standard.
