Don’t Subsidize Pollution in Springfield!

Did you know that biomass incinerators create even more carbon emissions and air pollution than coal plants? Not only that: they lead to unacceptably high levels of respiratory disease for those unfortunate enough to live nearby. And it’s invariably those with less means who live nearby. Today, I signed a petition demanding that the state legislature NOT classify commercial wood burning biomass incinerators as “non emitting sources” of energy. There is only one incinerator like this proposed in the state – right in the center of Springfield – a city that has been named the asthma capital of the United States twice by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
