You probably haven't heard this story -- it's been overshadowed by the media's ubiquitous coverage of the Supreme Court health care case.
 
But while every back was turned, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) quietly released new regulations that could cripple, or possibly even kill, many U.S. coal companies.

On March 27, the EPA unveiled a stringent proposal to limit any new power plant to a maximum emission of 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) per megawatt of electricity produced. The average coal-fired plant currently operates well above that threshold, releasing 1,768 pounds of CO2 per megawatt.
