Inceneritori: non potrete dire "io non sapevo"

Pubblichiamo qui di seguito un elenco, non esaustivo, di oltre sessanta studi nazionali ed internazionali riguardanti i rischi sanitari da inceneritori.

 

Attraverso questo semplice elenco, con i relativi link, ognuno è in grado di farsi un idea di come la letteratura scientifica mondiale parli degli aumenti, nelle vicinanze degli inceneritori, di Linfomi NonHodgkin, tumori polmonari, neoplasie infantili, sarcomi dei tessuti molli, eccetera.

 

Nonostante l’enormità di tali evidenze scientifiche la nostra classe politica continua imperterrita con la politica inceneritorista, portata avanti bi-partizan da PDL e PDmenoL, con l’avallo degli industriali (le aziende della famiglia Marcegaglia, presidente di confindustria, non costruiscono forse anche inceneritori?). A livello nazionale è il PDL a farla da padrona con i mega inceneritori come quello di Brescia e di Acerra che portano il marchio della Lega e di Berluscoso, ma a livello Toscano il PDmenoelle e tutta la pseudo-sinistra che ne appoggia l’azione, cerca di tenere il passo e si continua imperterriti sulla strada dell’incenerimento (gli ultimi colpi di genio parlano un mega inceneritore da 350.000 ton/anno a Livorno).

 

In provincia di Massa Carrara non abbiamo, attualmente, un inceneritore, ma non certo per un – quanto mai improbabile – virtuosismo ambientale. Abbiamo infatti costruito un grande impianto per seccare i rifiuti, impacchettarli e poterli così bruciare comodamente in qualsiasi impianto. In sostanza il cancro lo esportiamo ai nostri vicini. Questo è il massimo impulso ambientalista di cui la nostra classe dirigente è capace. E tra l’altro ci è anche costato decine di milioni di euro. Il Prof. Paul Connett, quando il Meetup Carrara lo invitò a parlare nella sala di Rappresentanza del Comune di Carrara, disse che gli impianti che producono il CDR (combustibile derivato da rifiuti) è quanto di peggio possa esistere perché mettono in condizione di bruciare i rifiuti in impianti di vario tipo, come i cementifici, eludendo quindi anche quel minimo di controllo che c’è sugli inceneritori.

Verrà un giorno in cui i Cittadini chiameranno alle proprie responsabilità i politici, l’enormità degli studi che pubblichiamo qui di seguito, sta a testimoniare che quel giorno non potranno dire “io non sapevo”.
