Description: Taken during a family canal boat holiday along the River Soar, this image really stood out to me due to the subject and its setting. Cows produce methane, a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming, and this cow is perfectly situated in front of the cooling towers of a power plant. Power plants tend to be fired by coal and the fumes are also a massive contributor to global warming. We need to be aware of these environmental consequences and take action.
