The fight for clean air

Just watched this video on The Ecologist about a Welsh town’s fight against an American power plant giant, which is planning on building a massive incinerator bigger than the Millennium Stadium on their doorstep. This incinerator would pump out dirty toxins day and night impacting on people’s health, farming and ecosystem. The whole thing sounds depressingly sad but there seems to be a lot of fight in the community. The petition by Friends of the Earth is closed now but there’s lots of info about the community’s uphill struggle and the damaging effects of the power plant on the Friends of the Earth site here… Good luck to them…
