Abstract:

Most global warming pollution from electricity generation in the Northeast comes from a handful of power plants, owned by a small number of companies. More Heat than Light identifies the worst polluting power plants and their owners--making the case that cleaning up these plants should be the first step to reduce global warming pollution from power generation.
