BIOMASS: Incinerator doesn’t make sense

We live in Mason County because it has clean air and water (mostly). I just can’t see allowing a biomass incinerator, spewing particulates too small to see, to take that away from us.

Why send our federal stimulus dollars to a French company (AREVA), partnered with a North Carolina company (Duke Energy of Hanford), incorporated in Maryland, that will sell the energy to California?

This project makes no business sense without federal and state subsidies. I just can’t see it.
