Fairfield waste-to-energy plant is a polluter

January 12, 2012

Regarding your article about the proposed waste-to-energy plant in South Baltimore, I don't think it's a good idea to have another such plant in the area since there is already such a high concentration of pollution there ("Delay sought for trash-burning power plant in Fairfield," Jan. 9).

If we are trying to reduce pollutants in the air, all a new plant would do is discourage recycling and make it even harder to build other "green" energy projects. That's a step backward, not forward.

We need to build more greenhouses, not power plants that make the environment worse, and we should think about global warming and decreasing the harm to our ozone layer instead of how to spew more pollutants into the atmosphere.
