How do I make an RSS feed for Bloomberg News?

I'd like to have an RSS feed for Bloomberg News, specifically for their environment reporting
, that I can put into Google Reader. The problem is, Bloomberg News discontinued
RSS feeds in 2006. None of the workarounds I've found are satisfactory: This one
, for example, tries to use Google News, but it wouldn't really work for my purposes. (Using
as my search string wouldn't necessarily return all news items related to the environment -- a story just about renewable energy, for example, not its environmental benefits, wouldn't show up at all.) There's also Feedity
, but they want you to pay to have feeds with any sort of functionality, which I'd rather not do if I don't have to. Page2RSS
is closer to the mark, but the output is messy (multiple stories in the same feed item). Businessweek.com, which is owned by Bloomberg News, offers RSS feeds with Bloomberg News, but they don't allow for narrowing down on just the environment reporting. Is there a solution out there that's better?
Please note that I'm not trying to steal content: I'm not looking to get a full-text feed, and in fact I'd be happy with just the headlines. And Bloomberg News is freely available anyway. I just want to aggregate news items from Bloomberg the way I can from virtually every other news site.
