IS what it seems

From today's Record :
PSE&G Bergen station tops emission list

The Record

PSE&G's Bergen Generating Station in Ridgefield releases more greenhouse gases into the air each year than any other large industrial source in New Jersey, according to a new federal report.

The Environmental Protection Agency's report is the first-ever list of how much carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases are released by large industrial sites and landfills nationwide. There are 98 such facilities in New Jersey, which release a combined 26.2 million metric tons of gases each year.

The Bergen power plant topped the list, emitting 2.6 million metric tons per year.

That equates to the same annual emissions from more than 500,000 passenger vehicles. It would take a pine forest covering nearly 850 square miles to capture all that carbon each year an area as large as Bergen, Passaic and Morris counties combined.
