The articles further highlights the duplicitous nature of the waste industry and government quangos. When challenged on the health effects of incinerators, the Health Protection Agency, Environment Agency and the Department of Health Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollution all refer back to a DEFRA report commissioned in 2006. The report was written by ENVIROS and the University of Birmingham. It turns out the then head of environmental science at Birmingham University, Professor Judith Petts, has been on the payroll of our old friends VEOLIA since 2000!! Veolia are involved in 16 existing are planned incinerators in the UK. They were also on the short list for our Beddington incinerator.
When I asked the receptionist if she would photocopy the article, she replied I could take the magazine as someone had left it in the waiting room. Triple result!!!
