Your view: Ethanol dangers

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

I am wondering if anyone in Sikeston has followed the issue on Ethanol Plants being constructed in close vicinity of residential communities?

The information on these plants will scare a person if one is not blinded by the $

$$$ the plant developers dangle in your face. I can only hope the plant is held to stringent pollution controls for your community's sake.

Do the community a favor and do a little research on ethanol production and see what types of pollution are emitted into the air. The EPA has seen to it that the ethanol industry can now emit up to 250 tons of hazardous air pollutants. Go to google.com and type in residents against ethanol plants.

Good Luck
