Sigh, people are hopeless. For those saying it doesn't pollute, why don't you all spend 30 seconds googling this before you post? The name of the power plant is right in the description, it doesn't take a genius. From wiki- Drax is a large coal-fired power station located near Selby in North Yorkshire in Northern England, providing 7% of electrical power required by Britain. [...]It has a maximum potential consumption of 36,000 tonnes of coal a day, it takes around 7 million to 11 million tonnes annually, [...] Although it generates around 1.5 million tonnes of ash and 22.8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide each year, Drax is THE MOST CARBON-EFFICIENT COAL-FIRED powerplant in the United Kingdom .........(emphasis mine) I wonder how much pollution the less efficient ones produce...

agreed, but the central tower is most likely releasing pollution...

Water vapour condensing from cooling towers is NOT pollution!
