NRDC Report Shows Carbon Dioxide Pollution Increasing from Top 100 Electric Companies - Emagazine.com
A new report by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) rating air-pollution emissions performance of America's 100 largest electric power producers reveals important trends in the industry, and sharp contrasts between the best and worst emissions performers. The report shows overall emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) are dropping, thanks largely to standards created in the Clean Air Act of 1990. Meanwhile emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), which remain unregulated, are soaring.
