US update

3rd February 2007

Alcoa - the world's biggest aluminium producer (and thus making a hefty global contribution to greenhouse gas emissions) - has joined a corporate-NGO alliance (of which Environmental Defense is a member) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Meanwhile , the Carbon Disclosure project (CDP) claims that less than half of US corporations asked to divulge their "climate risks" have done so.

CDP mentions specifically TWU which recently put forward plans to leash an unprecedented raft of coal-fired powerplants onto the US public.


Down in Florida, a familiar battle is being waged between environmentalists and another utiity over proposals to construct a vast coal-fired power plant which, it is claimed, will pollute the famous Everglades.
