Making these plants more efficient is the easiest way to reduce not only CO2 but all the pollutants. The cost and benefits of an efficiency improvement program are provided in the McIlvaine report, Fossil and Nuclear Power Generation: World Analysis and Forecast.

These designs all have the latest air pollution control equipment. China realizes that technological improvements make existing plants obsolete after 2.5 decades. Who would argue that the economic life of an automobile is more than 25 years? …
