More than 100 businesses, trade groups, chambers of commerce and elected officials are asking Georgia's Court of Appeals to look at a ruling that scuttled the permit for a power plant because it didn't limit the plant's carbon dioxide emissions. The decision received nationwide attention, as it's said to be the first U.S. court ruling that says CO2 emissions must be considered when building a power plant. The decision could influence the permits for all coal-fired power plants, not just those in Georgia.
