    next to an elementary school, knowing 93 tons of coal will be burned daily and a range of toxic chemicals will be released into the air via two smokestacks. but because the calculations and the event of an inversion in wind patterns would cause all that deadly emission to settle and accumulate right where the school kids are every day. that is criminal. and i fight criminals.the world health organization says no school should be built near a toxic factory, but the WHO never dreamed a company would heartlessly and soullessly do the reverse and not face a rule against it.

    Per Encyclopedia Brittanica: "Chemical weapons are chemical agents, whether gaseous, liquid, or solid, that are employed because of their direct toxic effects on humans, animals, and plants." If they know that they are discharging these harmful chemicals and they pose known (and documented) Health Hazard(s), per the EPA 'Hazardous Air Pollutants', wouldn't that imply intent or knowledge of wrongdoing? How is this different?? Just curious...?

    Having just moved to the area to raise our family I’m opposed to having our daughters grow with toxic fumes around them. Specially in such a beautiful place that would be destroyed for profit gain

    I grew up on WV, including adolescent years in Jefferson county. Jefferson county is considered the likely location where John Denver wrote Country Roads - a song that still brings tears when I think about the beauty of WV. I have recently moved from near DC to Loudoun Co, VA to get closer to "home". It would be a shame and a crime against nature and humanity to destroy the beauty of WV and VA in this part of the US. Please take the pollution somewhere it can be properly managed rather than spread over so much greatness.

    I’m from WV. There is no reason for risking the health of the few people that live in the state just to get a few bucks. Why not make some money off of something more sustainable and better for the environment?! ?

    This Toxic, deadly Coal Burning Plant must cease. Coal's obsolete, dirty and not cost effective relating to other forms of energy. There are alternatives but the corporate oligarchy's not willing to consider them.
