A PRESENTATION AND DISCUSSION ON ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE WITH MIKE EWALL ‘11

 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012

UDC LAW SCHOOL – ROOM TBA

12:15 PM -2:00 PM



Far filthier than burning coal, this huge incinerator proposed by Energy Answers, LLC (with the support of Baltimore City government) would burn 4,000 tons a day of trash, tires, contaminated wood waste and shredded carsBaltimore already hosts the largest of three trash incinerators in the state (burning 2,250 tons/day), and the largest medical waste incinerator in the nation.  This new incinerator is not even for Baltimore's waste, but for importing waste from the entire region, likely from New York to DC.  Enough is enough!

The state is poised to grant permits to this planned incinerator -- permits which would allow the annual spewing of:

* 240 pounds of mercury
* half a ton of lead
* 146 tons of particulate matter
* over 1,100 tons of acids and acid-forming chemicals
* over 1,100 tons of ozone and ozone-forming chemicals
* over 1,200 tons of carbon monoxide
* many other toxins, including dioxins and heavy metals

Join Mike Ewall, class of 2011 as he discusses his current work in Baltimore and the fight for Environmental Justice.
