Will the proposed plant have cooling towers or a cooling pond? Which one would use less water? Would either give a lower efficiency (and thus result in more CO2 production)?

LogicMan, The proposed coal plants would be the largest new source of CO2 emissions in the entire country. The plants would likely generate over 10 million tons of CO2 every year with no hope at reducing those emissions. They are not using the newer IGCC method which captures the CO2 and sequesters it into the ground.

Could you please site your source that Holcomb 2 will be the most carboniferous powerplant in the world?
