Unit trains of coal dead end at the Dunkirk electric power generating station on the shore of Lake Erie in Dunkirk, New York. 

No one minds  the tons of coal disappearing up the chimneys because  the wind picks up the effluent from the train cars and spins it off across Lake Erie to Toronto, Canada.

Hey, Canada can take a joke.  Ha Ha

How would you like to operate a business where you could just put all your expenses up a pipe into the sky - EXTERNALITIES they call them - and collect the profit from your ratepayes?

Dillution is the solution to pollution.

Coal is clean - and the three fellows on the catwalk can attest to it!
