“In the comics they’ve been with each other forever, even before we started doing the show,” producer David Greenwalt explained via phone. “It’s not just a wink and a nod, it’s very specific and true. I wouldn’t put anything past [Robbie and Cat], which of course is flattering, but we’re not going to do it again.”
The Obama administration’s new effort to curb carbon-dioxide emissions from power plants and other power-generating plants in the United States, dubbed the Clean Power Plan, has been widely panned. But one major U.S. electricity producer believes that’s mostly because of opposition to the measure, not a lack of evidence.
“We’re a big player, and we’re a pretty innovative player,” said Jeffrey Reis, CEO of NextEra Energy, a utility based in Jacksonville, Fla., that will have about one-third of the country’s clean-power capacity by 2020. “If I don’t like its implementation in one state, and I don’t like it in other states, then I’ve got a right to do it in my state.”
Mr. Reis told The Wall Street Journal that he’s “not in favor of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, but it’s about what do you say?”
The Clean Power Plan is under federal review after a legal challenge led by 20 states, as well as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which has said the plan seeks to lower carbon-dioxide emissions through various efficiency measures. The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear oral arguments on the EPA’s appeal but declined to hear the challengers’ claims. Those issues, however, have not stopped opposition from mounting.
On Sunday, President-elect Donald Trump declared that the idea of a carbon-tax to be proposed by Democrats is “a terrible idea.” And in May, his incoming Energy secretary nominee, Rick Perry, warned that the Clean Power Plan, even if it is enacted, would ultimately reduce jobs and lower the living standards of most Americans.
Meanwhile, Mr. Trump told an energy conference that he expects wind and solar installations to “do really well” under his administration and that the “one thing we can do to do, is get it down to 45 and let it go back up.”
In response to Mr. Reis’ comments, Kevin Book, president and chief operating officer of the Southern Company, a major South Carolina power company, told
