Forestville, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Sunset over Lake Erie as seen from my backyard this time of the year highlights the dirty smoke plumes from the Nanticoke Generating Station in Ontario (far right on the horizon). Nanticoke is the largest coal-fired power plant in North America and one of the greatest single polluters on the continent. It is currently scheduled to phase out the use of coal by 2014.
