"All of this foolish investment in infrastructure for an energy source that is finite is the definition of lunacy" Wow you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. in what wourld would waste tires be a finite energy source? Unless we are all going to start driving around in flying spaceships there will be a neverending supply of waste tires being generated. This is way better than filling the landfill with them.

"The facility will be subject to ongoing monitoring to ensure compliance with emissions limitations."

Self monitoring that is. When was the last time an industry in the course of making money was able to be trusted to do the right thing over doing what is right or best for all involved? It doesn't happen often, of that I am certain. Why do we think this industry will be any better or trustworthy. They will get away with whatever they can and they will pay the fines when they get caught because the fines are minimal when compared to the profit able to be made. All of this foolish investment in infrastructure for an energy source that is finite is the definition of lunacy. But it is driven by the potential for short term profits for a few. Those few have some money and know how to apply it to get what they want, and we buy it every time they sell it. Shameful!
