German utility RWE said it would push ahead with a new 2 billion euro hard-coal power plant with its partners after plans for several new facilities in the country were dropped recently. There was a need for more capacity as many plants were nearing the end of their service life and the German government had decided to phase out nuclear power, RWE Power CEO Ulrich Jobs added in the statement.
The killing accelerates. Burning coal is already killing tens of thousands of Europeans every year. Now, as the Germans begin to replace nuclear power plants with more coal-burning power plants, thousands more will be killed each year.
