Letter about Heartland

How did the idea of Heartland Tire Burning Incinerator get this far? It is absolute madness to let it proceed. It is obvious that all of us would have negative health effects, but who among us would suffer the most?

The two most helpless groups in society would have the most adverse reactions. The elderly with weakened bodies would have the quality of life and the length of life lessened. The young!

How can we as a society allow this travesty to happen to babies and children? This is outrageous! The tissues in young bodies are defenseless against the poisons that would be in the air they would breathe. The effects in most cases would not show up for years and then are devastating. Let us attack the cause not the effect of health problems.

In our environment, two of the most precious assets we have are the water we drink and the air we breathe. What then motivates someone to sell out our heritage? Money! Profit! Shame on them! And, shame on the leadership that has let this program surface! Let them all be responsible in the only way they understand, both jointly and severally. What to do with tires? Use them. Use them in a constructive and as much as possible non polluting manner. You, the public cannot sidestep this issue. Raise your voice in protest! Or, suffer the consequences.
