“Then on the day that Peabody Energy, the world’s largest privately-owned coal producer files for bankruptcy, when we learn that the Koch Brother and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have killed clean energy tax credits for geothermal, small wind, fuel cells and combined heat, we speak with an energy insider David Freeman who headed the TVA, New York Power and the LA DWP.
