Local Officials in Robertson County, Texas Love Pollution- TXU's Oak Grove Power Plant

30 March 2007 at 9:36:56 PM

Looks like Robertson County business and government officials are on the stump to persuade the locals in Robertson County that they Just Love Dirty Air. After all it Creates Jobs. Who cares if you can't breathe and Robertson County is a dumping ground for waste? I notice in this ad that TCEQ is going to decide on these permits by April.

Let's see, StopTheCoalPlants says that TXU won't be doing anything to regulate mercury emissions, which would be among the worst in the entire United States.

New EPA mercury rules require that the entire nation get down to 5 tons of mercury/year by 2018. If built, TXU's Oak Grove plant alone would comprise nearly 1.5 of those 5 tons.

Texas already leads the nation in toxic mercury emissions and Northeast Texas is at risk as a "mercury hotspot" due to numerous coal plants in the region. Mercury reductions are needed, not more toxic emissions.

If you don't agree that coal is good for you, and think that TXU ought to have to follow at least *some* environmental standards, then, like the biz people above, let YOUR voice be known to TCEQ.
