Florida Power & Light’s plant implosions beg the question: Is anybody monitoring the air quality at the point of collapse and during subsequent deconstruction activity?
FPL’s public-relations staff has an overarching message that it is doing a great thing for the environment. But they, environmentalists, and the Environmental Protection Agency don’t report on what particulates, polluting dust and soot went into our air unchecked at these events.
Anyone could see the massive dust-ups when the buildings and smokestacks came down at Port Everglades. I’d like to know if anybody monitored the air then or now and if FPL carefully removes asbestos and/or other material typically found in its aging power plants prior to implosion.
