Part of an ongoing series of photographs to document American power sources. A bleak future?

This is the site of the single largest point-source for carbon dioxide emissions in the United States.

This is a coal powered plant, not a nuclear power plant.

    nice pic. but isn't the point of nuclear power to not release carbon emissions? the only pollution i know of is thermal pollution from the cooling water, but that is nothing like carbon dioxide pollution

  • Ben Thomas

    Ben Thomas said (11 Jul 2009):

    This is not a nuclear power plant. It is a coal powered plant, that is why it is releasing carbon emissions.
