The delegates voted to support the four-part resolution submitted by Turners Falls Internist Jefferson Dickey.
Dickey, a physician with the Community Health Center of Franklin County in Turners Falls, said yesterday that he submitted the resolution on behalf of his patients who live downwind of the proposed Greenfield biomass power plant. "These plants are a significant source of particulate air pollution, and the Pioneer Valley already suffers regular episodes of high particulate levels," Dickey said. "We have stagnant air masses over the Valley. Pollution flows up from New York and New Jersey and it comes in from the coal-fired plants in the Midwest. Particulate air pollution has been associated with respiratory illness, lost work and school days, more emergency room usage and hospitalizations and increased mortality." Dickey cited a 1993 study that correlated particulate air pollution to increased deaths among people directly exposed to high concentrations. "The study found a linear dose response," he said. Dickey said he did not see the fairness in using taxpayer money to support the very air pollution generators that would cause deadly heart and lung disease among state residents. Dickey said even small-scale biomass heating plants, used in state schools and even hospitals, generate particulate matter and should be regulated as stringently as large-scale plants. "The issue is they all emit particulate pollution," he said.
