Mark Klinedinst has written a piece on the big fight against one of the largest utilities in the country, the Southern Company, to save poor people from having to spend billions on a boondoggle. The paper can be found here https://mpra.ub.uni-muenchen.de/62214/ (Corporate Walkover in Progress: The Case of the Southern Company’s “Clean Coal” Plant in Mississippi). Mark was covered by the New York Times on the the issue.
