  • Comment on: Review launched of bioenergy potential

    Dorothy Skrytek's comment 22 January, 2019 11:00 pm

    It's not low-carbon or zero-carbon, The IPCC report states we are supposed to be planting more trees, not burning more (in form of biomass)

    NB In Derby, a wood-burning plant is making people lives a misery, with the stink & particulates adding to the stink, particulates, nitrogen dioxide, dioxin, sulphur dioxide etc from the Renewi incinerator

  • Comment on: Defra says ‘no EfW capacity gap by 2030’

    'Energy from waste' which should, in reality, be called 'energy-to-waste' is not 'flexible, bankable or proven'
    Incineration ENDS reduction, reuse & recycling, composting eg Derby/Derbyshire

    and is high-carbon & polluting

  • Comment on: Research clears incinerators of causing birth defects

    Dorothy Skrytek's comment 28 November, 2018 1:23 pm

    FYI a list of 'parameters' for dioxin contamination in babies
    *cleft palate
    *facial deformities
    *fingers and toes missing
    *heart defects
    *born with cancer
    *dumbness
    *neural tube defects
    *paralysis
    *born with convulsions
    *deafness
    Dioxins in pregnancy may affect the reproductive system of male infants. Exposure to dioxins during pregnancy is associated with endocrine-disrupting effects in male infants. Associated with male infertility in adulthood
    Legacy of dioxin in Vietnam and Corby, & worldwide, still ongoing https://www.sbs.com.au/news/dateline/story/children-agent-orange

    Birth defects were NOT studied. Dioxin is a known cause https://t.co/TPOinjqGZ8
    How long will we have to wait for that study

  • Comment on: Council takes out loan to save money on PFI incinerator

    Laughable if it weren't so serious.Reduction, reuse, recycling, composting are cheaper than incineration, less carbon-intensive and don't cause Deaths Brought Forward. https://friendsoftheearth.uk/groups/derby/709
