Dear Mr. Fedor,
I am writing to you over concern for the citizens living and working
near your plant. The emissions from your plant need to be cleaned up. There
are ways to improve the quality of the air that you and your company have
chosen to ignore.
I am a registered nurse and have seen firsthand the consequences of air
pollution. I have cared for patients with many lung diseases. I have had to
use suction machines to clear the airways of patients with tracheostomy
tubes. I have run to answer the alarms of the ventilator patient in
distress. Presently I work as a hospice nurse. Dying from a lung disease is
one of the hardest to witness, not being able to breathe is terrifying.
I am aware that lung disease is caused by many factors. One of those
factors is the pollution coming from your factory. As a fellow human being
and inhabitant of the earth, I implore you to clean up your facility.You can
have an impact on the health and well-being of many. Please stop making
excuses for not improving your facility.
It appears that financial reasons are causing you to stall on cleaning
up the emissions. Lowering the incidence of disease helps everyone
financially by lowering the cost of healthcare. Please be a good citizen and
neighbor and implement the changes needed to clean up your emisssions.
