More coal-fired power plants planned

More coal-fired power plants planned. Most of this development will take place on Taiwan's west coast with water from Hushan Dam. These power plants should help Taiwan nicely on their path to become the world leader in per capita CO2 emissions. Taiwan is currently ranked third in the world for per capita CO2 emissions (Taiwan’s 11.9 tons/per capita emission rate far exceeds the 3.9 world average).

See yesterday's China Post article Taiwan seeks coal-fired power plants to plug shortfall.
