Kudos to the leadership of Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius for her courageous stand on Friday to veto the state’s forced approval of two coal fired power plants.

The Governor’s Secretary of Health and the Environment withheld approval for the plants because of the health impacts of the large amount of greenhouse gases that the plants would have produced.

The Governor also acknowledged that greenhouse gases impact future generations and that reducing these gases will benefit generations of Kansans to come.
