Do we really need a plant that drops chicken droppings in the Yadkin River? How about all those people that live down stream from the plant? Goodbye, good riddance.

This article doesn't make clear what the potential problems might have been with the poultry waste plant, but I will say it's a shame to see such a creative renewable energy idea losing support. Unless there are significant side effects of burning this waste, it seems like a really great way to make use out of an otherwise gross, pollutive, useless substance. I hope the county will take a close look at the plan to figure out whether or not the plant would have side effects, and if not, then by all means move forward with construction. We really need all the renewable energy projects we can get right now. Renewable energy and energy efficient technology make up some of the fastest-growing industries in the world right now, and because of the ongoing mechanization of the oil and coal industries, clean energy now creates around 3 times as many jobs per dollar invested as fossil fuels do. Power plants like Fibrowatt's would provide states like North Carolina with much-needed and long-lasting sources of both jobs and energy. I hope that local governments will take these benefits into account when making their final decisions, and in the meantime, I hope North Carolina's Senators Burr and Hagan will work on passing a clean energy bill in Congress so that renewable energy projects can see more of the investment and support they deserve.
