Planta del Oeste de Suncor en Colorado Requiere Permiso de Calidad del Aire Más Estricto, Piden Grupos
Emma Cheuse, Attorney, Washington, D.C., Office, Earthjustice: "Whether EPA will follow today’s action reaffirming the best available science by requiring fenceline air monitoring at these chemical facilities, petrochemical complexes and other facilities like sterilizers is still an open question, and whether it does this will be part of the ultimate test of the agency’s commitment to fenceline communities’ health and well-being."
Byron Chan, Attorney, Community Partnerships Program, Earthjustice: “They’ve barely done anything for the past 30 years. It’s like if you never went to the dentist, and the first time you went to the dentist you were 55 and racked up a super expensive charge — but if you had been going to the dentist every six months for your entire life, you wouldn’t have had to be put in this situation in the first place.”
Becca Curry, Colorado Policy Advocate, Earthjustice: “Suncor is really the biggest emission source within this industrial sector.”
