The window to comment on the EPA's Clean Power Plan closed on Monday with over 1.6 million comments. A quick search of the 22,718 comments that are publicly posted (less than 1% of the total) showed that Wyoming-ites sent their thoughts in to the EPA at six times the rate of the average American.

Wyoming's Governor Matt Meadweighed in himself that day, with his oft-repeated request for the EPA to rescind the proposed carbon emission rule. But, a few days later, he told me that this will probably never happen.
