TITAN CEMENT

The stuff that will spew out of the Titan smokestacks injures and kills. That is a fact. No bullying tactics like lawsuits will make that go away.

“A growing body of evidence links chronic exposure to air pollution––especially particulate matter (PM)––with mortality resulting from a variety of heart, lung, and respiratory diseases. A new study corroborates this association, and indicates that women may be at greater risk than men of fatal coronary heart disease (CHD) as a result of exposure to airborne PM [EHP 113:1723–1729]. When ozone (O3) or sulfur dioxide (SO2) is also present, women’s risk appears even greater.”

“According to EPA scientists, reducing cement pollution would save up to 2500 premature deaths every year and reduce thousands of heart attacks, asthma attacks and emergency rooms visits.” http://earthjustice.org/blog/2011-january/congressional-assault-on-healt...

The EPA estimates that PM 2.5 kills 20,000 people and hospitalizes many more each year”. - http://www.ucsusa.org/scientific_integrity/abuses_of_science/epa-air-pol...

* Titan’s proposed PM emissions would result in an increase in existing PM pollution for NH County by an estimated 33 %.
* Titan’s proposed PM10 emissions would result in an increase in existing PM10 pollution for NH County by an estimated 33 %.
* Titan’s proposed PM2.5 would result in an increase in existing PM2.5 pollution for NH County by an estimated 37%.
* Titan’s proposed NOx emissions would result in an increase in existing NOx pollution for NH County by an estimated 29%.
