US power plant emissions down, study finds

5 hours ago
Power plants that use natural gas and a new technology to squeeze more energy from the fuel release far less of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide than coal-fired power plants do, according to a new analysis accepted for publication Jan. 8 in Earth's Future, a journal of the American Geophysical Union. The so-called "combined cycle" natural gas power plants also release significantly less nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide, which can worsen air quality.


"Since more and more of our electricity is coming from these cleaner power plants, emissions from the power sector are lower by 20, 30 even 40 percent for some gases since 1997," said lead author Joost de Gouw, an atmospheric scientist with NOAA's Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado Boulder. NOAA is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Who's not winning? The skeptics!!!!! You see here in America we're spending real money to cut down emissions...Do you idiots really think if you were winning we'd be doing that?

Another article that defeats the AGW church claims.
Perhaps you can explain how that is so?

That we are reducing the amount of GHGs we produce is a very good thing. But that does not solve the problem of the speed of increase of the amount of GHGs going into the atmosphere. China, India, and many other nations are more than making up for our reductions. And even were they to start immediatly reducing their contributions, the increase in heat that is in the pipeline won't go away.
