Double speak

On the heals of the IPCC's report based on the irrefutable consensus of the world's scientific community concluding that the planet faces an unprecedented rate of global warming and it is due to human activity, the Environmental Protection Agency issues a permit to allow the incineration of tires to power the National Gypsum plant in White Deer.

We live in an Orwellian world where language is used against us as a weapon of mass deceit. In what bizzaro world is the environment being protected by this action? How is the health of those of us who call this valley home even a minor consideration of the absentee owners lusting for a few more dollars on the balance sheet in complete disregard of the wishes of the vast majority of men, women, and children of this community?
