Have a listen here.

Energy Policy Analyst William Yeatman tells the story of how the EPA is forcing a power plant in New Mexico to install $370 million worth of equipment to improve visibility in a nearby park.

New Mexican electricity consumers, meanwhile, will be able to perceive their bills going up by an average of $82 per year.
