Incineration in Europe


All we ever hear from the consultants or from our regional politicians who have made the trek(s) to Europe for their scripted tours of incineration facilities is that they have widespread approval in Europe and no one objects to them -- forgetting to mention Europe's huge public protests against incineration.

Just a few examples include:

  • An anti-incineration petition drive in Bavaria, Germany collected one million signatures in 12 days.
  • France's anti-incineration coalition boasts over 100 citizen groups.
  • English environmentalists are opposing incinerators hammer and tongs.

Nothing can stop incinerators from spewing CO2, smog precursors, toxic heavy metals and other pollutants. Incinerators will always work on the same basic principle: garbage in, garbage out.
