WHY WOULD TITAN AMERICA BUS IN EMPLOYEES FROM OUT OF STATE FOR A HEARING FOR LOCAL CITIZENS? At the DAQ Draft Air Permit hearings yesterday, it seems Titan America hired transportation and brought in their employees(don't know how many yet, but eventually they'll be a hard number) to speak in favor of the project. Locally, Titan had about 20 "supporters". Most were contractors/realtors/developers who would stand to benefit from Titan's building here. Locally, close to 5,000 local residents, as well as almost 500 medical professionals, have signed independent petitions against the Titan project. Several dozen local and state organizations think this project is inappropriately sited. Our local state legistlative delegation favors full review for the project and/or is opposed. Johnathan Barfield is opposed (see his facebook site). And the following state and federal agencies think its a bad idea: North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, Division of Marine Fisheries, NC Wildlife Federation, North Carolina Marine Fisheries Commission, and US Fish and Wildlife Services.
