CO2 http://wyomingpublicmedia.org en Wyoming Coal Versus The Courts http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/wyoming-coal-versus-courts <p>This week’s Supreme Court ruling on the EPA and its ability to regulate carbon is a mixed bag for Wyoming officials and energy producers. It sets the stakes even higher for Republicans in the state who are determined to derail a pending EPA rule on climate change. &nbsp;</p><p>Like most all things here in Washington these days, the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of the EPA is being read along party lines. But Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi says it’s not just partisanship. He says your opinion also hinges on where you’re reading.</p> Sat, 28 Jun 2014 00:05:21 +0000 Matt Laslo 60530 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Wyoming Coal Versus The Courts Texas Coal Plant May Be Environmental Game Changer http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/texas-coal-plant-may-be-environmental-game-changer <p>New EPA rules aimed at <a href="http://www.vnews.com/news/nation/world/12066522-95/epa-readies-carbon-cuts-for-utilities" target="target_blank">cutting carbon</a> emissions are expected to be unveiled June 2nd. Coal generates nearly <a href="http://www.vnews.com/news/nation/world/12066522-95/epa-readies-carbon-cuts-for-utilities" target="target_blank">half of this country’s electricity </a>and is the largest source of air pollution. The new rules are expected to spur the use of clean coal technology. At least that’s the hope of both the coal industry and some environmental groups.

The Energy Information Administration did the analysis. The agency attributes the increase to a small comeback by coal from a dramatic market share low in 2012.</p> Wed, 15 Jan 2014 00:31:51 +0000 Irina Zhorov 52631 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org CO2 emissions from energy sector up slightly from 2012 Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute to host CO2 conference http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/enhanced-oil-recovery-institute-host-co2-conference <p></p> Wed, 26 Jun 2013 00:33:07 +0000 Willow Belden 42803 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute to host CO2 conference CO2 in stream, dead ducks prompt DEQ citation http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/co2-stream-dead-ducks-prompt-deq-citation <p>Wyoming environmental regulators say carbon dioxide bubbling up from the ground may have killed six ducks and polluted a stream.<br>&nbsp;<br>The leak happened in an area where CO2 is injected underground to help revive an old oil field and boost oil production.<br>&nbsp;<br>The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality has ordered Anadarko Petroleum to identify and control the carbon dioxide leak into Castle Creek in central Wyoming.
