Mitch McConnell's Kentucky 7th biggest polluter in the USA

From the Huffington Post:
Carbon dioxide emissions from power plants rose in 2010 by over 5% -- this is the biggest annual increase since the EPA started tracking emissions in 1995. In part, this increase can be explained by warmer weather and a recovering economy. But the statistics are worrisome. 2010 was one of the hottest years ever recorded, and while in 2010 coal-fired boilers accounted for 45% of U.S. electricity, they were reportedly responsible for 81% of CO2 emissions from electricity generation.
