That is good.

Looking at the Real Time British Electricity Fuel Mix figures, one realises that for every 10GW, CCGT produces over a tonne of carbon dioxide every second.  Coal generation is three times that, while (UK) nuclear is around 60kg/s (I donít know how that figure is derived).  Wind and solar are zero, of course.

Here in the UK our generation has been around 50GW at times.  When one thinks of our little island(s) compared to the whole world and that there are ~31 1/2 million seconds in each year.... if most of the generation was from coal...

Little wonder we have climate change.

If you look on at CO2 emissions you will see that wind and nuclear are simialr and solar about twice the level - so certainly not considered zero.

I assume alot of the figure is to do with CO2 emitted during construction and maintenance (most vehicles still on dino based products) along with the materials used to produce the panels/turbines, supports etc.

As usual the figures will be very dependant on what is included or not which is a rather political discussion...
