In the 70s, I started up coal fired plants in Chile and worked on them in China. No emissions controls AT ALL. Not even electrostatic precipitators to capture the flyash. Our plants are very clean with particulate, SO2, NOx, water and solid waste disposal controls. If she wants to see dirty, go look at China. I doubt they are installing basic controls, even today.
Indeed. It might do the TXU some PR good to be pro-active and maybe take a busload or two on a site visit to a TX plant, and maybe give a ppt presentation to the congregation on modern pollution controls. Otherwise they'll cluelessly continue to spout this enviro-whacko misinformation.

Oh yes they do. The trick is that these emission control devices are installed, but they aren't switched on behind the backs of Western consultants or reps going there to investigate things.
