Clean-energy activists staged a "Coff'in" Wednesday at the Utah Capitol. The protest included a rally and a visit to the office of Gov. Gary Herbert, who they say supports aggressively developing fossil fuels. "We're looking for more leadership from the governor and elected officials," said activist Deb Henry, who's a member of the sponsoring organization, Utah Tar Sands Resistance, and Peaceful Uprising. She called Herbert's energy policy a "runaway train that's on a collision course."
