Americans often take their daily electricity for granted. And it’s only when storms knock down power lines that we realize how much we rely on it.

Unfortunately, there are real, growing concerns about the long-term sturdiness of America’s electricity grid. That’s because a decade of heavy-handed federal regulations, along with a wave of competition from natural gas, have combined to dismantle a sizable number of the nation’s coal-fired power plants.

The End of the Ocean Acidification Scare for Corals

The global increase in the atmosphere’s CO2 content has been hypothesized to possess the potential to harm coral reefs directly.
