Parma’s incinerator

The wheel is turning
(01:09)

Incinerators kill. This is affirmed by doctors. Evidence is provided by the increase in the incidence of tumours in adjacent areas. So how can you define a would-be PDminusL mayor who wants to construct an incinerator and actually in Parma, in the “Food Valley”, sending out dioxin into the air and onto the food?

“In an auditorium packed to the rafters with citizens, the would-be mayors of Parma in a face to face about the incinerator. The positions came out very clearly.
Vincenzo Bernazzoli, the centre left candidate, confirmed his unconditional “yes” to the incinerator, however he never entered into the merits of the proposal from GCR, he never challenged the figures that show that not only is it possible to do without an incinerator, but it’s also OK economically. He never demonstrated the hypothesis with solid evidence. In Italy we are moving towards the solution without incinerators: Reggio Emilia, Sicily, the Province of Lucca. Europe foresees a block on the burning of material that can be recycled or composted from the year 2020.
But in Parma there’s the rule of the "Legge Vincenzo” {Vincenzo’s Law}. Bernazzoli doesn’t even respond to inconvenient questions: “Where will you put the toxic ash from the incinerator?” It’s not known. They want to put the heavy ash in bricks (in Treviso they have knocked down an infected house ...). Today they are talking about “bio-edilizia” {green building} with biomaterials using hemp (but what does it matter ...). 39,000 tons of ash will be taken out of the province each year as will all the organic material: and the self-sufficiency that is so acclaimed? Bernazzoli denies the evidence relating to health. He affirms that the facilities are safe. But the Federazione Ordine Medici Emilia Romagna {Medical Association of Emilia Romagna} is asking for a moratorium. The advice from the organisation called Moniter is not to build new facilities. For the old candidate of the system, it’s just terrorism. The serious worries of the doctors don’t affect him.
The sorting of waste is used to bring savings to the citizens and to save resources. Instead, at Ugozzolo, only 17% of plastics are recovered and the rest will be burned. With the incinerator we are obliged to get rid of refuse and suffer other costs that wouldn’t exist if we were to recycle the material rather than eliminate it.
For Pizzarotti, the incinerator is a mistake that has to be remedied. The site has to be reconverted and there must be acceptance of the proposal from Multiutility, the Dutch company that has repeated its availability to help Parma in moving towards correct management of refuse without incineration.

I had no idea who Sabina Ciuffini was. Last Thursday night I found out: what a woman!

Non centra nulla per quanto riguarda la questione "inceneritore di Parma" ma mi preme informarvi che il nome del moVimento 5 stelle a Foggia sta facendo scalpore e scandalo...Il nostro gruppo intento a seguire gli ideali del movimento viene ostacolata da abietti individui dicesi appartenenti alle sfere alte del movimento, e questo già rovina il concetto di democraticità...senza poi contare che c'è un assoluta concorrenza, e mi chiedo per che cosa, dato che poltrone attualmente in palio non ci sono...io credo in Grillo come persona giusta e coerente per quello che dice e fa...e chiedo che venga fatta giustizia a chi del movimento vuole farne un ulteriore partito di potenti e non di umili cittadini...
