Here’s a little irony for you. On Monday and Tuesday of this week, the United States Environmental Protection Agency was set to hold public hearings in Atlanta on a national plan to reduce greenhouse gases by further limiting emissions from coal-fired power plants. This is a very important hearing, since only four hearings will be held across the country on the matter. Here’s the quagmire. The hearing reportedly had to be moved to the Omni Hotel/CNN Center due to the fact that, wait for it, the Sam Nunn Atlanta Federal Center located in downtown Atlanta lost power due to faulty equipment located within the building.
In essence the Federal government is coming to tell Georgians and other surrounding states how to generate power, yet they can’t even keep the power on in one single building operated and maintained by them? Go figure!
The Sam Nunn Federal Building is home to some 5,000 Federal employees that work for 21 different Federal agencies.
