The radical environmentalist group Earthjustice is again meddling in Kansas energy policy. They've sent a "warning letter" to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
Frank Drinkwine of the Kansas Sierra Club has an editorial in today's Wichita Eagle that ignores some important facts.

The Wichita Eagle's recent editorial by Rhonda Holman takes a few Kansas legislators to task for statements regarding regulatory uncertainly in Kansas (No 'regulatory uncertainty' in Kansas, October 28, 2008 Wichita Eagle).

A dubious claim made in this editorial is how "Neither Bremby nor Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is 'out front' on this issue [carbon emissions]." Jackson claims that Bremby was just following an inevitable trend towards more regulation of carbon emissions. But this is in direct opposition to news reports at the time.

Bremby disagrees with Neufeld's assertion that Bremby's actions have created "regulatory uncertainty" in Kansas.
