A typical coal plant is 1000 MW and used to cost 1 billion to build. This Mississippi disaster is now breaking a record for stupid.
6 billion to get less than 600 MW output so you can sequester life-sustaining carbon dioxide?
Many years ago, here in North Texas some fanatic greenies, led by a now ex Dallas Mayor and former journalist named Miller, told the Texas electricity companies–no more plain old coal plants cause coal plants were killing the children or the ground squirrels and prairie dogs. They created a regional t-shirt brigade. Miller was a real jerk, typical consumer journalist turned politician.
They wanted one of them fancy new sequester the CO2 plants.
We’re still waiting. They don’t deliver. It is a fool’s errand.
