Looks like two more could bite the dust early, boom.  And saving consumers money as well, a win win (at least in most people's eyes).

..I read the Denver Post every day, and I remember this story in the local metro paper last year reporting the units were being retired-....No surprise the Pravda-esque drive-by main stream media hijacks the almost year old  story and endeavors to mold it to fit their fake news political-agenda propaganda efforts.

And another defeat.  When long term cost effective pricing is needed coal is in trouble.  No need to worry about transportation costs, labor increases etc. on a solar bank that will last over 20 years.  Saving customers money, creating good paying jobs and helping the environment, now that is something Trump will never believe, although the majority of people in the US already support it.  Instead he wants to use taxpayer money to keep failing coal plants open costing customer more even though grid studies and grid operators show closing them is not a problem.

Prospects for Trump's plan do not look good, but is that really a surprise.    Republicans supporting this would be totally against free markets.

Articles are popping up about the demise of Africa's ancient Baobob trees. As the researchers have not yet found a pathogenic or other such cause, their hypothesis for primary causality, right now, is climate change, overeating of the species. What makes this more interesting, to biologists, is that the population of Baobob's is so small, living in a specific ecological niche. So this is an interesting study to follow, to see how it plays out. It could also be that the climate has allowed an as yet undiscovered pathogen emerge. Or something else entirely. When we stayed at Diani Beach in Kenya, there was a Baobob on the property - bizarre, big, upside down looking trees. Edible fruit, odd growing pattern, they don't have rings.  Also makes me wonder how my favorite plant of all time is doing - Welwitschia mirabilis. A desert plant of Namibia, it also lives for centuries, has two strap-like leaves, survived the harsh cold dry winds of Namibia. It is one of the more primitive surviving plants, taxonomically speaking.

And that is your bio lesson for the day. Sorry for the ramble!

Interesting. I wonder if there's parallels with other ecologically isolated plants - like the Joshua Tree.

Good point. I'll keep my eye out for other instances of change.

This is curiously interesting: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/astronaut-footprint-moon-warming-180969362/?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=socialmedia

....temporarily raised lunar surface temperatures by 1.8 to 3.6 degrees in a few square feet of sterile lifeless  ejecta, on a barren meteorite-slammed rock which incurs a lunar daily temperate range of 270 degrees, with no atmosphere, no evidence of any life forms.....ever, where there is a 200+ degree difference between the side of a space suit facing the sun and the side in shadow, where there is absolutely no evidence of any lasting impact what so ever of human activity on the non-existent lunar “environment”.Ya, definitely curiously fascinating  8) .

And the beat goes on in the US giving the middle finger to Trump along the way.  No turning back now, majority support it and so do businesses and it costs less as well.

AEP has retired 7,200 megawatts of coal power since 2011, and announced plans to invest heavily in natural gas and renewables.
“I think from our perspective we will continue moving toward a  clean energy economy,” AEP Chairman Nicholas Akins said in an interview.  “When you look at the future and the investment potential and the risk  associated with these investments by far the best approach is with  natural gas, renewables and in fact technology.”
