There are about fifteen heating plants in Moscow. Their pipes can be of two types: smoking ones – high and “slender” and water-cooling towers – short and thick. The second ones are absolutely harmless for the environment, they are in fact like ordinary humidifiers but as high as a twelve-storey house.
