A decent portion is from nuclear generation in NC.

Don't know about that.

Long outdoor bike rides are often hazardous to the health of Charlotte residents, thanks in large part to air pollution from four coal-fired power plants that ring the city.

4000 MW of nukes within 30 miles or so of CLT. Plus some great coal plants. And there is nothing wrong with that.

There are three nuclear stations with a total of five reactors (Brunswick, McGuire, and Shearon Harris Stations) in North Carolina. The Catawba Nuclear Station is by Charlotte in South Carolina.
