Testimony on the unequal burden pollution places upon poor and minority communities.
Destiny Watford, Free Your Voice, speaks out against plans to bring the Energy Answers incinerator to Curtis Bay, an industrial area of Baltimore, Maryland. Watford stated that the plant would be within a mile of two schools and would discharge lead and mercury into the area which is already heavily polluted by industry.
Watford pointed out that the incinerator would not burn refuse from Baltimore, but would be importing fuel from other areas.
Watford won a prestigious environmental award for leading opposition to the planned plant which has not been built.
