Did anyone else notice that the picture of the power station in this article with the huge “smokestacks” with “smoke” pouring out them and the caption
Damage: Global warming has been caused in part by the CO2 emitted by fossil fuels. This image shows smoke billowing out of a power station
is a trifle misleading? There is, in fact, a smokestack in the picture. It’s in the upper left hand corner of the picture and there’s a bit of smoke coming out of it. There might be a smaller one next to it. The large, scary looking things with the plumes pouring out of them are cooling towers and the plumes are plumes of steam.
I have no comments whatever on the article itself or the study it cites. I was just amused by the picture. I’m guessing that the editors didn’t know any better but wanted some alarming power station pictures.
