?Daddy, won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County, down by the Green River where Paradise lay.
I'm sorry, my son, but you're too late in asking.......?

Iconic plant’s end spells doom for struggling coal industry

Sing it one more time....but with hope that more close.

I've been to Paradise.... in 1972. Photographed the song's mentions and the last 'structure'... an old outhouse leaning at at angle, with those 3 cooling towers in the background.

Paradise isn't lost here in Gloucestershire, but sadly the Adam & Eve Inn is no more. It's now a private house - but the bus stop retains the name. Pub sign.

Hi, Bill - I support ecology and peace and all that good stuff, but I have to admit that I often partake in evil pleasures. Warplanes often fascinate me, as do coal-burning power plants. Once, after a Getaway folk music camp, I drove west to see if I could visit Catspaw in Bremen, Ohio (successful). I drove west along the National Pike through the Maryland Panhandle to Wheeling, West Virginia. From there, I drove mostly along the Ohio River through West Virginia and Kentucky to Cincinnati (Ohio). There were dams every ten miles or so along the Ohio River, which made the river smooth as glass. And every ten miles or so, there was a huge, coal-fired power plant, with all kinds of complicated and interesting machinery and a port with complicated machinery for unloading of coal. All along the river, there were rafts of coal barges - maybe as many as 21 barges and a tug in each raft. It reminded me of my grandfather and the smoke-belching power plants he build for Henry Ford (but grandpa also designed and installed scrubbers to cut some of the pollution). But I have to admit that had guilty pleasure in seeing all those fascinating power plants along the Ohio River - and I would have been enthralled by the power plant at Paradise, too.
