A Call for Clean Air

Approximately 21 000 people die each year in Canada from air pollution. 7 million die worldwide. Rio Tinto Alcan recently received a permit from the Canadian Government to double the Sulphur Dioxide emissions. Sulphur dioxide it a poison and is linked to cancer, cognitive dysfunction, pre-mature births, heart attacks, strokes, acid rain and many other negative impacts to humans, animals and the environment. If Rio Tinto Alcan installed scrubbers, they would reduce their S02 emissions to nearly 0. It would cost them roughly 200 million dollars. It is the socially and environmentally responsible thing to do.
