Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As a Swede I'm appalled at how two-faced Vattenfall is. At home it's all about hydroelectricity, renewable, yada yada. In reality there's increasing amounts of coal in the mix.

(Perhaps someone can explain why "brown coal" is worse than "coal"? Extraction methods?)

It's interesting to listen to the way this company uses the words "Europe" and "European" - in many ways it's similar to the way they are used in the USA when talking about early US history: old-fashioned, bad, unenlightened and certainly not our responsibility.

(Wikipedia links to an article here - in Swedish, sorry - that sadly I don't have time to translate right now.)
