Bonham, Texas Residents Oppose TXU Coal-Fired Plant to be built near Savoy-Will Talk to Judge

5 December 2006 at 12:12:25 AM

TXU is seeking state permits to run 11 electricity generating plants that use pulverized coal from Wyoming for fuel. The TXU plants, including Savoy Valley Plant 4, would use pulverized coal from Wyoming in current coal-fired technology

There's a hearing about this-residents that show up can be considered parties to the legal case.

Citizens Organizing for Resources and Environment is a Fannin County group that met recently to urge others to join them in formal opposition to the coal-fired plant and support for coal gasification, also called IGCC. Residents may still be considered parties to the legal case if they show up at the hearing, scheduled for 10 a.m. Dec. 7, at L.H. Rather Junior High School, 1200 N. Main St. in Bonham.

I noticed reading this that although 25 Texas House Reps asked for the fast-track process to be halted, the rep for that district, Larry Phillips didn't sign the letter.

“The timing of it to me is not as important as have they met all the requirements to ensure the safety and quality that’s required. But, he added, the state needs more power production to prevent brown-outs and black-outs. He said no IGCC plants have been permitted in Texas; they’re speculative and that they could be more properly considered as part of the Future Gen project Texas has applied for. He added that Texans need relief on their power bills and reliable sources of energy.

“I did get a call about it (the letter,) but it concerns other plants in other parts of the state that I haven’t evaluated yet, so I didn’t think I should sign it,” Phillips said.

Boy, was THAT a wimp-out. Not surprised he's a Republican.

As one CORE participant put it

“Look at the children in this room,” Lipsett said. “What are we going to leave as a legacy to our children in a dirty environment? As their lungs grow they are absorbing these emissions at an unbelievable rate. It’s particulate matter that we don’t even see. We can fence ourselves off from our neighbors; keep our cows from going into other people’s pastures; but these pollutants have no borders. They are swept around this county, around Texas; wherever the wind blows, they go.”
