Waste to Energy
By Jens v. MuellerCandidate for Council Member; City of Cathedral City
This information is provided by the candidate
Edom Hill turns trash into dollars for Cathedral CityMention incineration of trash and you think black smoke, belching from tall smoke stacks.
What if I told you that Europe has been incinerating their trash for the last 20 years.
Do you picture Denmark with smog choked country sides? Or Germany and Sweden, long global warming advocates, allowing pollution causing plants in their country? The truth is, there are over 400 waste to energy plants in Europe with 10 more scheduled to be built in the next year.
The USA, once a leader, is now frozen by fear and environmental madness. But there is hope. The EPA has endorsed the technology and the government offers subsidies for their construction.
The technology is so good now, that backyard barbecues in these countries, produce more pollution than the waste to energy plant in their own neighborhood. Smoke is not the issue anymore, only the tremendous amount money and jobs they generate for the city smart enough and forward thinking enough to capitalize on the technology.
I want Cathedral City to be the city that see's the future and embraces it and profits from it.
