How many coal-fired power plants are there in the world?

    As of 2007, at least 50,000. Since 2002, the world has been on a coal-fired binge, bringing new generators online at a rate of more than two per week. That has added some 1 billion tons of new carbon-dioxide emissions that humans pump into the atmosphere each year. Coal-fired power now accounts for nearly a third of human-generated global CO2 emissions. Despite Kyoto limits on greenhouse gases, a 2007 analysis shows that nations will add enough coal-fired capacity in the next five years to create an extra 1.2 billion tons of CO2 per year.
