I always smile as the meeja show the newer chunky stacks with all the white stuff pouring out whenever they say global warming or pollution - the white stuff is steam, the stacks are scrubbers/coolers, the skinny stack to the left with nothing visible coming out is the one pumping the nasty into the air.
Yes those big hyperbolically things are cooling towers, used anywhere that there is not a river or ocean available, such as loy yang. For efficiency you need to get the bottom temperature of your rankine cycle plant as low as possible, so you need to dump heat. Hazelwood created their own enormous recreational lake for this purpose. It has always shat me that hyperbolic cooling towers are used by the media as a symbol for nukes when they are just "any thermal plant" gear.
