    What can one say? Faced with falling sales they reduce their emissions. Fantastic. They amass carbon credits by the bucket full. I am sure that the UK would buy as many bucket fulls as Simens could provide. We buy carbon credits to keep our coal powered power stations on line. How many are bought to repay for the many million tonnes of CO2 emitted from their municipal waste incinerators? A reply would be appreciated .
