Cooling towers are seen at the Laziska Power Plant in Silesia in this picture taken July 10, 2008. Poland, which depends on coal for more than 90 percent of power generation, will be among the hardest hit when the EU ends free handouts of carbon permits to energy firms. A new plan by Brussels to make European Union energy companies pay for the carbon dioxide they emit from 2013 threatens to lift energy costs to very high levels. Picture taken July 10.
