Because of the noise the employees cannot work in the building. Greenpeace keeps the alarm running until E.ON stops with the construction of the polluting coal-fired power plant at the Maasvlakte. 'E.ON must realize that we are on the verge of disaster for the climate', states Greenpeace Climate & Energy campaigner Rolf Schipper. 'While in Poland the whole world is working on an international climate agreement, E.ON continues the construction of a coal-fired power plant, which is very devastating for the climate. That is unacceptable'. This new power plant will emit yearly the same amount of CO2 as 2 million cars. More than 20,000 people call on E.ON to stop the construction. Their protest messages are projected at the E.ON building. One activist rises with 700 CO2 balloons to look with enormous binoculars inside the E.ON office to see on which disastrous plans they are working. E.ON is planning to build at least eight new coal-fired power plants in Europe, while positive energy like sun, wind and clean biomass is available.
