Peabody Energy, the world’s largest private coal company, did not sway from its support (financial or otherwise) for the controversial ads placed in Kansas newspapers on Monday that said Iraqi, Venezuelan, and Russian leaders were smiling because of the governor’s recent rejection of two applications for coal-burning power plants.

Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius said the state’s decision was based on projected risks to health and the environment from global warming. Governor Sebelius said the backers of the ad owed Kansans an apology.
