While Medupi power station is already being built and another independent power producer also eyes the Waterberg District, a French South African partnership between GDF Suez and Exxaro is also planning on building a coal-fired power station there. Earthlife Africa is strongly opposed to this plan, as there is already not even enough water for Medupi’s emission controls systems.

Earthlife Africa has spread the news in a press release on April 21 in order to inform the public of the impacts also with regards to the newest findings of the IPCC.
