    Greta Jochem, December 12, 2018 (Grist)

    "…[Baltimore’s Wheelabrator trash incinerator is its] single largest source of industrial air pollution…[It spews] over 600,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually…[which is equivalent to] more than 130,000 cars driven for a year…One analysis estimates the facility’s air pollution kills an estimated 5.5 people per year…[But its energy] is considered renewable…[and gets millions] from utility companies and ratepayers as a result of the state’s renewable energy policy…[Many states include trash incineration, poultry litter incineration and paper mill-waste burning] alongside wind and solar energy…

    …[The nonprofit Food and Water Watch analyzed the 30 renewables mandates] across the country and found that everyone also included ‘dirty’ sources such as mill residue, wood, waste incineration, and waste-methane burning. Some of these generation processes emit large amounts of carbon dioxide and many release other pollutants…[And] the pollution these sources generate disproportionately affects poorer communities…[because the plants that burn them tend to be located where the percentage of the population living in poverty] was higher than the state average…” click here for more
