Rob,

Isn't this headline a little misleading, the rate of emissions although not insignificant isn't what causes the health effects here, it's the overall amount of NoX that contributes to these.

When total amounts of NOx are measured, Longannet comes tenth in the league of big polluters. It is behind five other plants in England, two in Poland and two in Spain.

Certainly nothing to be proud of and requiring urgent action. but maybe not quite as 'headline' as your suggesting.
