Brayton Point produces more carbon dioxide than any other source in New England and New York - almost 5.9 million metric tons of greenhouse gases in 2010 and 2011. Brayton Point also tops the EPA list of the largest emitters of chemicals in Massachusetts in 2010, with more than 1 millions pounds of chemicals.
The two 497-foot-tall cooling towers have the capacity to pump more than an Olympic-size swimming pool worth of water each minute, and the concrete in both towers is enough to pave a sidewalk 250 miles long. They are the tallest buildings in Massachusetts outside Boston.
I live in Rhode Island.
But I can see Massachusetts from my backside.
