Covanta Pollutes California Air & Then Sponsors Earth Day

In California, Covanta has ambushed Earth Day.  They call it 'sponsoring'.  Not unlike Dublin City Council's PR consultant RPS conveniently judging the "European Green Capital City".
  • Covanta and its Ogden-alias have been fined thousands of times for polluting the earth. 

In Ireland, Dublin City Council's paid consultant RPS judges the European Green Capital City.  
  • RPS has been paid up to thirty million Euro so far in 'consultancy' fees to promote waste-to-toxins incineration.  They cite European cities, omitting certain facts.

Here's a video about Covanta trying to ambush an Earth Day event in California.

RPS Director judges European Green Capital City Award.
Engineers Journal I Volume 62: Issue 8 October 2008 

The article announces that P. J. Rudden, RPS director, will judge the European Green Capital City award in 2008. The city which has a consistent record of achieving high environmental standards and sustainable development will receive the award. Rudden will judge the waste production and management as well as water consumption and wastewater treatment in applicant cities.

When referencing Stockholm as "European Green Capital City" its omitted that RPS judged the "award".  Then they cynically spin about alleged European examples to try to justify a huge waste-to-toxins incinerator in Dublin. 

Covanta's incinerator in California's Central Valley imports waste long distances from various counties like Alameda, Contra Costa, Fresno, Mariposa, Merced, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Santa Clara, Solano, Tuolumne, & Yolo & other states including Washington, Oregon, & Nevada.

US toxic legacy in Fallujah worse than 'Hiroshima'
Shocking rates of infant mortality and cancer raise vital questions

A US marine leads a captured Iraqi in Fallujah, Iraq during the assault of 2004. Experts believe some form of uranium was used in new weapons

Dramatic increases in infant mortality, cancer and leukaemia in the Iraqi city of Fallujah, which was bombarded by US Marines in 2004, exceed those reported by survivors of the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, according to a new study.
