Canary in a Coalmine

"It does not matter how slow you go so long as you do not stop"

Enel must thought Italians have rings on their noses!

The Italian State Council has rejected the conversion plan of one of Enel’s gas power plants into a coal power plant. According to Enel, a coal power plant would be less polluting than a gas power plant because its higher chimneys are able to release pollutants further from the ground. Greenpeace Italy campaigns director Alessandro Giannì said that “coal is the worst plant enemy”, totally unsuitable to an area like the one where Enel intended to convert the gas power plant.
