Chemours expansion plans infuriate environmentalists

North Carolina environmental groups are outraged over the Chemours chemical corporation’s plans to expand its Fayetteville Works plant in Bladen County.

Chemours announced in a statement Tuesday that it will hold two public information sessions on plans to expand its manufacturing capabilities at the plant, which sits just over the Cumberland County line. 

The planned expansion would “support an increase in domestic production in the semiconductor, transportation, clean energy, consumer electronics, and communications industries,” according to the statement.

Little more is known about the expansion plans because the company said it will not provide interviews before the public sessions.

Chemours has been under a consent order since 2019 to clean up decades of per- and polyfluoroalkyl contamination — also known as PFAS or forever chemicals — that have been emitted from the plant into the air and the Cape Fear River. The contamination has affected thousands of people from Cumberland County to the coast. Many will no longer drink the tap water from their homes without filtration.

“Chemours’ decision to propose this plan when so many still lack safe drinking water due to its reckless handling of toxic chemicals shows where its priorities lie,” Geoff Gisler, a senior attorney for the Southern Environmental Law Center, said in an email.

Chemours is expected to provide more details of its expansion plans at the two public sessions. The first one is set for 5 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 20 in the Bladen Community College auditorium in Dublin. The second is scheduled for the same time the next day at the Leland Cultural Arts Center. 

At least until then, Chemours will remain mum on specific details of its proposed expansion, company spokeswoman Lisa Randall said in an email. 

So people won’t know whether Chemours plans to produce more PFAS at the plant, although production of semiconductors and electronic components typically contain the forever chemicals. People also won’t know how many jobs will be created and the average wage of those jobs, or how Chemours plans to keep surrounding areas safe from pollutants.

Sharon Martin, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Quality, said Chemours has not submitted applications related to its proposed expansion to the DEQ.

“DEQ remains focused on the immediate need to address the PFAS contamination from Chemours and its impacts to North Carolinians throughout the Cape Fear River basin and the continuing

We need to combat again towards well being care’s terrifying conquest by the radically woke

All Individuals need to be terrified of what is about to happen in overall health treatment. The exact same radical woke activists who’ve corrupted K-12 schooling and community security are about to power each health-related scholar to study and practice divisive, discriminatory and downright dangerous issues. What happens in healthcare university will in the long run corrupt all of wellbeing care, and as a longtime health-related educator, I’m contacting on policymakers to battle back again.

The looming risk comes courtesy of the Affiliation of American Clinical Schools. The AAMC, which administers the Medical University Admission Test, represents 171 US and Canadian health care faculties alongside with far more than 400 educating hospitals and overall health techniques. One of its crucial roles is creating benchmarks for the subjects and concepts health care college students must learn. And what, you request, are the most current needs? You guessed it: diversity, equity and inclusion.

Rolled out in mid-July, these new criteria are overtly ideological. They will train healthcare pupils for political activism as much as healthcare care. Never just take my term for it: When announcing the specifications, the AAMC’s president and chair of its council of deans declared that woke id politics “deserves just as a lot notice from learners and educators at each and every phase of their professions as the most up-to-date scientific breakthroughs.”

These benchmarks have radical expectations for what professional medical-faculty graduates, residency graduates and school physician lecturers need to know and do. For occasion, med-faculty grads have to be thoroughly versed in so-named “intersectionality.” This contains “demonstrat[ing] evidence of self-reflection and how one’s personal identities, biases, and lived experience” influence scientific apply, as perfectly as pinpointing a “patient’s a number of identities and how every single could end result in diversified and many kinds of oppression.”

Oppression is a steady concept. Graduates need to describe “the effects of numerous methods of oppression on wellness and health care,” which include “colonialism, White Supremacy, acculturation, [and] assimilation.” They ought to also recognize “systems of ability, privilege and oppression,” together with “white privilege, racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, [and] spiritual oppression.” The moment graduates detect the oppressed, they are anticipated to follow “allyship,” which is outlined as “recogniz[ing] their privilege” and “work[ing] in solidarity with oppressed teams in the struggle for
