Otter takes on Obama

— Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter has criticized President Barack Obama's administration for seeking to limit coal-fired power plant emissions while not allowing sufficient timber cutting to tame big western wildfires, another greenhouse gas source.

Otter told reporters at a Western Governors' Association meeting in Park City, Utah, on Sunday that Idaho wildfires release more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than is released during the production of coal-generated electricity for Idaho's 1.5 million residents.

The Republican governor's numbers may be technically correct, but some scientists say the link was misleading because it focused on a single, sparsely populated state with large swaths of range and timberland that burn annually. More here. John Miller, AP
