Report names top power plant polluters

Wednesday, July 27, 2005; Posted: 10:55 a.m. EDT (14:55 GMT)


SOMERSET, Massachusetts (AP) -- Ten power plants in the Northeast last year produced a third of the region's carbon dioxide emissions, considered a major contributor to global warming, according to a report released Tuesday by a coalition of environmental groups.

Brayton Point Station, a predominantly coal-fired plant in Somerset, was the top carbon dioxide emitter, the report said.

The report said Brayton Point released 5.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide into the air in 2004, representing nearly 5 percent of the total released in the nine-state region.

Two other Massachusetts power plants also were included on the list, along with six plants in New York and one in New Jersey. The report was compiled by the National Association of State Public Interest Research Groups, the Clean Water Fund and Environmental Advocates of New York.

The nine states in the study were Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont. (hahaha - Delaware DIDN'T make the top 10. I wonder why they skipped Pennsylvania unless they all knew that PA would probably blow the lid off of the top 10)
