Cement manufacturing is by nature a filthy industry and is especially inappropriate for a growing community surrounded by fragile yet ecologically vital wetlands. Stopping the proposed cement kiln and associated strip mines is important because research has revealed that the jobs it would bring to the area are not only few, but are menial and low-paying. The only exceptions are the few supervisors who will be brought in from areas OTHER than Wilmington. Posters here really need to education themselves about the toxic horrors this plant would bring to the Cape Fear River and other local waterways & wetlands. Not worth the paltry "jobs."
