Here is why the cancer rate is so high in New Madrid. I have seen pink, green, yellow, and blue clouds of smoke coming out of the power plant smokestack. Read and educate yourselves.

New Madrid power plant plant has spent millions of dollars over the last ten years to improve their environmental impact, they have been innovators in the new technology, paving the way for many other utilities who were not brave enough to try it without it being proven to work. First power plant in the USA to start burning low sulfur coal in a plant that is not designed to burn it and at the cost of millions of dollars learned how to burn it and paved the way for other companies to follow suit. Built the biggest SCR in the united Stated at a cost of millions and this was also unproven technology at this level and they figured out how to make it work and reduced NOx by 94% and added overfired air technology to get a second burn in the boiler to further reduce NOx and was able to make that successful which also gave other plant the information so they could follow suit. Have been working on new technology to get Mercury down and have been successful and will implement in the near future and as soon as they prove the technology other companies will follow suit again. So give the New Madrid power plant a break they have been innovators in helping to clean up our air and spending their own money so they can stay ahead of the game and not have to charge the public triple of what they are paying now. The technology is there we just need to give it some time to be implemented and not freak out and cost the american working man a fortune. 2002 was a long time ago and there is much work to be done but please give them credit for taking the lead to help us all reduce our pollution without causing the working man to go broke. They will continue to work to clean up the air for us all, that is one of their main goals so help them help us without breaking us in the mean time. Thanks for your support!!

The environment includes your home - how would it be with no air conditioning and no heat? Oh, you would generate your own heat - and just how would you do that? Like Al Gore, some people bitch about pollution, get in their jet and ride off to their homes where the first thing they do is turn on the AC and hope that every one else doesn't want to burn any electricity. Live like a cave man if you want, I'll take the modern version of life and live longer than the 50 year life expectancy of your ancestors.

You have not seen nothing Pink unless the moon was behind it, you have not seen anything green, yellow or blue either. You are just a moron stirring shit and it won't work because we have a ton of people that have lived here all their lives and never seen it. You will see more smoke at times do to weather or conditions but you will never see the colors of the rainbow dummy. Let me ask you this what do you think is coming out of that stack? What is pink, what is green,what is yellow and what is blue. The same thing comes out of that stack all the time so it never changes colors unless it is the weather or your angle. You want to help, help develop the new technology to burn cleaner coal. Most of you environmental morons that push this shit have so much money you don't have to worry about paying your electric bill, thats why this is all you have to do is push all this on the working man that has a hard time paying his bills and you spend all that money convincing other people that can't afford to pay their bills to believe you, the dummies and then when it is too late they are broke and you still have all the money in the world and don't have to worry about your bills. Quit fooling the working man that don't have the brains to realize if you get your way it will break them. Thanks

Why all the hate? How does one do it without the power company? For heat I use solar tubes to heat water. I also have enough solar panels to more than supply my energy. To top off my batteries i have a wind turbine.

What you're smelling is the paper mill at Wickliffe, not the power plant.
