West Wind Blowing Ill

Fisk Generating Plant still spewing mercury and what-not over our fair city…

 

According to recent EPA figures, Fisk and Crawford emit 269 pounds of mercury; 17,765 tons of sulfur dioxide; and 260,000 pounds of soot each year.

 

In 2007, the plants emitted five million metric tons of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that plays a significant role in climate change. That’s the equivalent of over 800,000 automobiles.
