* Area Pastor Questions ReVenture Incinerator Impact

“As stewards, caretakers of the earth and world where we live, we have a responsibility to be sure that progress is not harmful to the environment…”

Rev. T.J. Thompson

Pastor, Cooks Memorial Presbyterian Church

Rev. Thompson has reached out to the Cooks Memorial congregation and poised many of the same questions and concerns that many citizens have been asking about the impact of the ReVenture gasification incinerator project for over a year. What will be the impact of an unproven, 1980’s technology for burning our garbage, and that of 5 other counties, on our community, our air, our water, the land and the world that we will leaving for our children?

Please read Rev. Thompson’s letter from the April 27th “Cook’s Communicator” newsletter below.

Cooks Memorial Newsletter April 27, 2011 Page 1

Please share this newsletter with your faith leaders and ask them to become involved by asking these same questions. Make copies to share with your fellow worshipers at your next service. Write an article for your house of worship newsletter. Email and call your elected officials.

Rev Thompson posed the most important question for all of us, “What will we pass along to future generations? How are we being good stewards, good caretakers of what God has entrusted to us?” Beautiful. What actions will you take today to preserve and protect our world?

Thank you Rev T.J.
