      It does have that thick, billowing look that one associates with steam, doesn’t it?

      Steam is just the visible fume there. Plenty more being emitted there than just steam – dioxins, C02, mercury, hydrochloride acid. Long nasty list

        Is mercury typically disposed of in an incinerator, I wonder…

        – I think I will need to see a source for that, I suspect you talking out your bum.

        Send that poo to the next town and use the land for solar…The poo is still going somewhere. Fuppin loved that game. :)

    If they read the comments and what they were relating to, it would be a great improvement. Rather than playing the big ‘I am’ with their itching, twitching, trigger-happy paws, maybe read and absorb the convo and know what they’re deleting. Deleting responses to racists, rather than the actual racist comments is staggering. Get with the programme or do one, moderators.

        Topsy, genuine racism is nothing to be making wise cracks about. Charger Salmon has been permitted to post endless racist comments on this site. The fact that you think that’s alright, speaks volumes.

    Nice thick pollution coming off it and another smaller chimney in the same area last sunday around mid day.
    I was hoping the wind would shift and blow it onto the decks of the cruise liners docked in the port. The authorities don’t care about the lives of the residents of Ringsend, but complaints and lawsuits from cruise liners and tourists would make them sit up and notice…

    Are details of the emissions published regularly by the EPA or the council or the corporation operating the incinerator?

    1. dav

      you do know this is the country that allows builders to self certify their sub standard building work?
      I’m sure in the same way they will allow whomever is running the incinerator to publish their own figures on what they are pumping into the atmosphere – nothing to worry about!

    I’m just really glad they built this in the most densely populated part of the country so everyone can keep an eye on it.

      I suppose there is an argument that, given that a large proportion of the waste generated in Ireland comes from Dublin, somewhere in Dublin would be the fairest place to build it.

      Sure, if it was built in Leitrim it might not bother as many people, but people from Leitrim could probably argue that it was a bit unreasonable that they were left to carry the can for all of the nation’s rubbish.

      1. ahjayzis

        Sure thing. And given all the country’s money is generated in Dublin we’ll keep that as recompense under the same principle.

        Best of luck, Leitrim.

          It actually is lovely. The fella who wrote the song wasn’t wrong.

          I’ve worked out the problem with Ireland. Gorgeous countryside, crappy ole ugly towns.

          Well “a” problem, not “the” problem.

          Anyway, as you were.

    Given we know where most of the toxic garbage comes from in this country wouldn’t RTE Montrose have been the perfect site for it?
