Are you making a statement

Are you making a statement that only people who voted for Obama care about children and their health? Don't make such broad assumptions about people and this is an environmental issue not political. I have yet to hear anyone that is against Titan coming to our community state their political party or positioning on abortion. You can obtain the EPA report online: a summary of their report - An EPA official stated that Titan's air permit doesn’t address the proposed rules that would significantly cut emissions limits for a number of pollutions, including particle pollution, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and mercury. Titan’s draft permit was “significantly less stringent” than EPA’s proposed emission limits for cement kilns—such as allowing Titan to emit eight times more mercury and placing no limits on hydrochloric acid at all. They went on to state that the weak permit and emissions controls proposed by Titan could significantly contribute to future violations of National Ambient Air Quality standards for the Wilmington region. EPA also formally asked DAQ to explain why the state agency isn’t requiring Titan to comply with the new tougher federal regulations.
