Virtual Power Plant Tour
We can only take so many field trips, but this is one I would love to do if we had the time. We discussed coal-fired power plants in class, but this short interactive tour (with real pics and computer animations) will give you a better feel than the diagrams in your text.

According to this recent NPR story, China is planning to build 500 coal-fired plants over the next decade-that’s almost one a week!!!
