This is my backyard—the Great Smoky Mountains. It gets its name from the fog that comes naturally in the morning and after big rains, but increasingly, air pollution is having a big impact. I don’t want the beautiful areas where I fish and hunt to become the Great Hazies, so I’m speaking out through my pastoring and advocacy for a clean and healthy environment.
I pastor in an area where air pollution seems to be somewhat greater due to the industrialization—it's an area filled with manufacturing plants.
My chief concerns focus on the area of air pollution and it's effects on people and the environment.
I live and pastor in Upper East Tennessee. The area in which I reside is only minutes away from the Great Smokey Mountains. While pastoring is my passion, I am also a passionate outdoorsman. I fish and hunt, so as we look at the effects of pollution in the environments, you will know that I am concerned.
