Goodbye carbon

The good news comes to us, in this case, from Germany. The German country has decided to close all power plants that operate under the power of coal, to be more exact, lignite, a kind of coal.

The action falls within the plan of the German government that has promised to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 20% by 2010 compared to 1990 levels, as reported by diarioecologia.

As a negative point, it has been the suppression of fines for large polluting companies, a proposal rejected by unions, energy companies and local governments.
