Gormley Must Put an End to Poolbeg Incinerator

Press Release

Ruairi Quinn TD and the Labour Team in Dublin South East – Councillors Mary Freehill, Kevin Humphreys, Dermot Lacey, Oisin Quinn and local representative Maria Parodi, have expressed their disappointment with the decision of the Environmental Protection Agency to grant a licence for the Incinerator in the Poolbeg Peninsula.

They called on the Minister for Environment, John Gormley TD, to fund a Judicial Review of the decision in the High Court.

“John Gormley needs to show his Green credentials and fund a Judicial Review on behalf of the local community in the High Court. He could have used his powers as a Minister to put a stop to the incinerator. This really is his last chance to act. If he doesn’t, he will be to blame if this incinerator is built.

“It is clear that the management of Dublin City Council has not gained the support of the local residents for the imposition of the incinerator in the midst of their community.

“We have great concerns about the number of trucks that will pass through the Poolbeg Peninsula to service an incinerator. There will be more traffic congestion and more pollution if this incinerator goes ahead”

“We have doubts about the cost of the incinerator. Dublin City Council has signed a contract to provide 600,000 tonnes of waste a year for this plant. There are serious concerns that the city will be unable to provide this much waste. If it can’t, all taxpayers will have to pay the owners of the incinerator. This is madness.

“An end needs to be put to this project.”

    It seems a Dublin Bay Incinerator at Poolbeg
    would cost at least 100,000 man-years of life.

    This is for the first 15 years,
    for Dublin’s population of 1 million.

    Basis: Estimates by British Society for Ecological Medicine
    using World Health Organisation Air Quality Guidelines

    American’s will live up to 2 years longer than Europeans,
    – due to air quality standards.
    Basis: European Respiratory Society.

    An incinerator is basically a deadly particles generator. Dublin City Council has spent €19 million to promote its cynical one-sided case for the Dublin Bay Incinerator at Poolbeg.

    Apparently there has been a total omission of the health impacts – apart from spin such as ‘you can not prove that’. This is the tobacco industry defence.
