McConnell opposed coal plant while judge exec.
McConnell opposed coal plant while judge exec.

A paper in far eastern Kentucky is reporting that Senator Mitch McConnell, a staunch supporter of coal, opposed locating a coal plant in Louisville when he was Jefferson County Judge Executive back in 1984.

There is a Paducah connection to this story. Convenient Energy Inc. of Paducah was the developer. And they weren't happy with Judge McConnell.

According to the Hazard story - "The Courier-Journal reported in August 1984, that McConnell may just be opposing the plant for political gain.

"'Mitch is jumping on the political bandwagon,' said Gene Smith, a consultant on the project for its developers, Convenient Energy Inc. of Paducah. 'This little coal plant has become the focus of attention, and McConnell is hoping to capitalize on that.'"

Construction Career Day at MSU Expo Center offers high school students hands-on exploration in fourth straight year

(MURRAY, Ky.) "We're trying to let students know what areas of technical work they can get involved in," said Associated General Contractors of Western Kentucky president Danny Dyke. "Each year, there are more people retiring and there has not been an emphasis on getting people to come in to take the place of the retirees. If we don't have enough of them, we won't be able to sustain the infrastructure in this country."

The 2014 edition of the special event to which he referred was held recently as the Fourth Annual Construction Career Day at Murray State University's William H. Cherry Expo Center. "Each year, it's gotten bigger and bigger," Dyke explained. "They like coming here to get the hands-on approach with backhoes and mini-excavators, and other equipment."

The Chicken Littles of Power Production predictably predict doom
The Chicken Littles of Power Production predictably predict doom

There is a move afoot for the EPA to require a 30 % reduction in carbon pollution from 2005 levels in power production...

..There has been much caterwauling in power production literature and other media that there will be massive increases in electrical bills, always dragging out the specter famously uttered by "Chicken Little"----"the sky is falling, the sky is falling." All this unrepentent trickery is reminiscent of the car industry reaction when miles per gallon goals were established.

Why Does Political Geography Scare Americans so Much?
Why Does Political Geography Scare Americans so Much?

Why does political geography scare Americans so much?

The answer is that political geography is a front for economic geography. Thus, economic geography is about the realities of modern economic changes and pressures upon people, commerce, and trade among nation states.

At the same time, in 2014, both geographies are about the end of one era of international order and the emerging birthing process of a new world order.
