Adding coal to the fire

Plans for a new coal-fired power station in Scotland have been met by controversy. According to The Guardian,

climate activists say that if the proposed 1.6GW station in Ayrshire is approved it will be environmentally disastrous.

Juliet Swann, of FoE Scotland, said many local residents and environment groups would protest against the

scheme. It would increase the UK’s use of coal, and, at first, use untested carbon capture and storage technology

to tackle only a quarter of its CO2 emissions. She told The Guardian: "Carbon capture and storage is potentially

a way to reach a low-carbon future. But it should be demonstrated on existing plants fi rst, not least so we can

share the technology with the rest of the world, and in doing so repay our debt to them for supplying us with so

much of our dirty energy."
