    just closed two dirty coal  burning electric generation plants on Lake Erie that were responsible for a great deal of the mercury pollution of the lake. They could have put in scrubbers and other controls in response to pressure from Sierra Club and others but went the way of least investment to make sure its profitability this quarter is  maintained. The plants would have still been profitable after amortizing the costs but the creeps would rather close it down and blame EPA and environmentalists.
