200 temporary jobs and 63 permanent positions are not worth the tremendous negative health impacts, as well as negative industrial impacts (tourism, fishing, filmmaking, etc). I've lived here my whole life and I don't want Titan cement here.
Consider: health impacts to human beings from emissions from the coal-burning plant.
Consider: impacts to tourism industry. Who wants to come to a place with an ugly skyline and pollution-filled air?
Consider: living near a heavy industry that creates trucking traffic, loud noise, and bright lights at night
Consider: loss of income to fishing industry when fish are unhealthy and inedible from absorbing heavy metals from polluted water
Consider: how would you react if you turned on your faucet and no water came out - because your aquifer ran dry from an industry pumping the water out for its own benefit
Consider the many ways that the proposed cement plant might impact YOU and your neighbors.
