Virginia Air Pollution Control Board - No Comment on Coal Fired Power Plant...Indeed
Their job is simple - Issue the permit.
“The goal is to issue a permit that meets the laws and regulations and is both protective of human health and the environment,” he said. “But I’m sure some won’t be happy because it’s too high and others because it’s too low.” ~ Board Chairman Richard Langford
Read that quote again. The permit will be issued and the tree huggers will cry and gnash their teeth. Coal miners will mine coal, trucks will haul it, and the power plant will spark it up. The revenue provided will solidify 50% to 60% of Wise County's tax base providing citizens with a brighter future. Lets mine that coal!
