Titan has a proven record of lobbying Congress to reduce pollution standards, paying fines and using the court systems to delay following guidelines and laws. No name change or "GREEN" buttons you wear on your shirt can change that. They also sue US citizens for speaking in public against them. Why a foreign corporation is even allowed to do this in our country proves how much our so called public servants have sold out, and the law firms that handle crap like this should be tried for treason, but that is another issue. On the issue of badly needed jobs for our area, HOW MANY jobs are going to be given to people that live in this area that are not already employed by Titan? What is the payscale for these jobs. That Titan is unwilling to give out this information speaks volumes about what kind of corporation they really are. Why did Titan try to get a waiver added to the bill for Castle Hayne becoming a town that would have done away with the 5 year wait on new towns forming a zoning board? Was this an attempt to buy favor with the new council had this happened? I am so grateful Castle Hayne voted against this. Bottom line is this: New Hanover County is the second most polluted county in the state, no further pollution should be added. This plant will be right next to an already polluted river. Do you now clean up rivers by adding more pollution? Why can't they use natural gas instead of coal to operate this plant? This would make it cleaner. There is a real possibilty of wells going dry in this area, if Titan is allowed to dig this pit, will Titan be willing to pay for new wells, or would they sue homeowners for daring to use water they need? They are a foreign corporation that sues US citizens for speaking out against them in public, how can anyone dare to not agree with them? This proposed plant will be extremely close to 2 schools, and even if you can jusitify putting profits ahead of the health of adults, can you also do the same for children? Remember the just say no to drugs campaign? We need to just say NO TO TITAN ALSO!!! That this air permit was issued causes me to wonder who was promised what to make this happen. It would be refreshing if our public leaders just once did what was right and sent Titan packing!
