Waste incinerator can cause pollution? Is that your answer? I have another fact for you which I picked up from Ananda Lee Tan of Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives.
Eight years ago, Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania, guaranteed a $125 million loan to rebuild the city's waste incinerator. Today, with a debt crisis of $300 million, the city finally realised that the U.S. Energy Information Administration is right in its report that burning waste is the most expensive way to generate energy in the US.
Yes, American taxpayers, Harrisburg, your largest U.S. city has been declared bankrupt.
So, wake up citizens of the world, before you start guzzling more energy and creating more waste for your government to consider building one in your country.
