Environmental opponents of powering Texas with new coal-fired plants are predicting a grim scenario.
Those critics issued a report Tuesday that estimates 240 deaths will happen each year from toxic emissions -- if the units are built.
But Dallas-based TXU Corporation, which plans to build eleven of the plants, questions the study's methodology.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality also disagrees, saying its data indicates that the plants pose no risk of premature death.
The report was commissioned by Public Citizen and the Sustainable Energy and Economic Development Coalition.
