If you care about your health and your children’s health…everyone needs to be up in arms about these devices but no one cares at all…it’s amazing…truly amazing. The immediate, local air pollution these devices create are ten-fold worse for you and your children…yet they are viewed as nothing but nuisances.

I visited one this summer. I was shocked by how clean everything was. It’s not at all like that picture in the diagram shows it. There were no black clouds of ash and soot. The employees were very well taken care of. I think that education is needed and we need to speak with those who manufacture our energy to work out a solution. They don’t want to pollute the air and water either. They live in the same community as you do. But, the more we increase regulation, the more it will drive up the cost of energy. This is a huge burden, especially on the poor.

Those are just my thoughts.

But, we need the coal-industry to stop poisoning our kids with mercury. Thank you so much for standing up for clean air, Jaden!
