Wah! TXU Asks Environmental Defense To Pull Ad against Coal-Fired Plants from TV

16 February 2007 at 11:57:52 AM

I guess TXU didn't quite cotton to the description *massively polluting* coal-fired plants. Gee, how WOULD they like their polluting plants they're trying to fast track through the state, with Perry's help, to be characterized? Just Friendly Clean Coal Plants That We'll Make Big Ole Profits From? Pfffttt! Surely it's more the job of TXU's front group by TAB, Texas Business for Clean, Affordable, Reliable Energy,  to try to hornswaggle the public.

Environmental Defense spokesman Colin Rowan said the ad's pollution claim was justified based on the group's analysis of TXU's 20-percent reduction pledge and on new emissions of carbon dioxide, the most important greenhouse gas linked to global warming.

The group said in a report last week that the 20-percent pledge is "misleading at best and patently false at worst. It's not really voluntary," the group contended, "and it's not enough to meet federal mandates" that begin taking effect in 2009 and tighten again in 2015.

TXU's new plants would emit 78 million tons of carbon dioxide per year in addition to the 55 million tons per year the company's existing plants emit. TXU is already the state's biggest carbon dioxide emitter.

Wrote before about that 20 percent.
