Overheard on NPR
Each morning I listen to NPR on the radio and when we arrive at the gym I give hubby the hi-lights!
So I’ll share with you the fun I find too!
This morning there was a story I came into in the middle about a power plant in Alexandria. (It happens to be the power plant that provides power for the white house) This plant gets a different EPA emissions standard than most other plants. There is a group of people that have decided to live where they can see, hear, and smell the power plant. It has been in use for over 25 years. This was an interview statement I heard this morning – ‘The plant was here first but we are here now!’. Ummm… hello? Take responsibility for your actions! What a great idea to live near a power plant and not expect bad things. People really are stupid!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the environment, but that statement was just a bad reason to try and get something cleaned up.
