The post contains impossible and conflicting claims regarding carbon emissions.  First, it would be impossible to reduce carbon use by 5/6, because existing coal-fired plants are about 33% efficient.  It would be possible to reduce atmospheric emissions by 5/6, but the post claims both that (.9 tons to .15 tons) and 96% reduction ("less than 4%").

I agree with Engineer-Poet. Since when is 0.15 4% of 0.9 ! It is far more.

Craig Fleming

You ar eboth incorrect and the article is correct.

the new plants are more efficient to emit .15 tons rather than .9

it also says that 80% of carbon emmited is captured so only 0.15*0.2 is emmited.

0.03 tons compared to 0.9 is 3.33% (almost 4%)

No Fay Payday Loans

This idea is good but I think they should first know and study the circumstances that will happen because if this project will not work they will just waste money for the expenses or the given budget on it. Like the way we spend money in the wrong method. This site talks about the pros and cons of payday loans and other related topics on financial matter: https://personalmoneystore.com.
