Det kulfyrede britiske kraftværk AES Drax i Yorkshire udleder 22.8 millioner tons CO2 om året – i følge Guardian er det mere end de 100 mindst industrialiserede nationer udleder tilsammen …

Tjek især det her billede af DRAX.

Apropos kulfyrede kraftværker:

Rupert Soames, CEO, Aggreko: ‘There are about 8,000 power stations in the world and the vast majority are highly polluting coal-fired things,’ he said. ‘If the world is serious about making an impact against global warming, then just turn the worst 150 polluters around the world into clean nuclear stations and the effect would be the same as if you immediately took every single car in the world off the road. It’d be that dramatic.’
