When it comes to using the power of the law to protect North Carolina’s water, air and land, no organization does it better than the Southern Environmental Law Center. That’s why I was so excited to get their announcement via email today, challenging the permit recently granted to Titan Cement. Titan, a foreign-owned business with a sordid history of putting profits over people, has tangled with the wrong people.

“By allowing the cement company to emit unnecessary and harmful levels of pollution, the state’s permit for Titan’s pollution fails residents and visitors of North Carolina and violates state and federal law,” said Geoff Gisler, an attorney for the Southern Environmental Law Center who represents the groups. “Ignoring available pollution controls, the state granted Titan’s toxic recipe to pollute the air we all breathe.”
