Why support a polluting plant?
TO THE EDITORS:
Why give a penny -- or taxpayer millions -- to anyone who threatens to increase Pennsylvania's Air Quality Action Days?
Claiming to help farmers, chicken-seller Perdue instead plans to pollute farms, air, land, water and food across the Susquehanna Valley with emissions from a taxpayer-subsidized, industrial, soybean-crushing factory.
This newspaper reports the factory "would emit such a large quantity of the air pollutant hexane that the company would have to pay for the reduction of smog-producing gases elsewhere."
Gov. Tom Corbett has already awarded $8.75 million to Perdue for this factory designed to dump hexane -- a hazardous neurotoxin -- into the air in towns and cities across south-central Pennsylvania -- including Harrisburg.
Why do so many officials keep avoiding the toxic truth about hexane? Must the public boycott Perdue to be heard and save even those politicians responsible for this mess?
A short, new YouTube video explains more. Search for this on Google: "boycott Perdue." Click on the small photo containing the word "Perdue."
