I skipped the article but was quite taken by this comment from here : https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=27959428
According to this article just 5% of the world’s power plants account for almost three-quarters of carbon emissions from electricity generation.
I think this may be one of the most encouraging bits of news about AGW that I’ve seen in a long time. 5% of electric power plants (about 1500 plants) is a lot, but it’s a manageable lot. This gives us a clearly defined area of attack with a very high ROI. It seems to say: if we’re going to get serious about saving ourselves, start here and go all in. The paper lists the top 10 polluting plants… unsurprisingly many of them are in China and India, but at least one is in Germany. If Germany wants to set an example, there’s where to start.
This is the place to discuss environmentalism, preservation, direct action and anything related to it!
