An inefficient incinerator in Beirut to be adding waste to our deteriorated air quality?

What I’m about to tell you is inspired by a true story that took place in the last few days in our land of the orient with a named wary fox who just lost his refrigerator after five years of good and loyal services.

He is not the only Lebanese in failure, the cemetery of appliances and Electronics in Lebanon is littered with innocent victims of an electric current as failing as the leaders of the country. (Actually, only Syrian repairmen are available for kitchen machinery)

Is it that today the city council of #Beirut has gathered in large pump to debate an important dossier. It is determined neither more nor less to install an incinerator of household garbage in the Lebanese capital.

If the project sees the day, up to 200 tons of waste could be burned every day at the noses of the Lebanese and the example will be followed by other municipalities.

They will tell you that there will be ” Filters “, that we will be in the ” standards ” and that we will do as in ” Sweden “, anything!

We live in a neglected country at the highest level, where standards are never respected, ridden by corruption, ravaged by incompetence, guided by ignorance, overextended to 150 % of its GDP, with a human density of 600 Inhabitants by km2 whose electricity is very poor quality and which collects four divergent opinions to fix a fridge?

The Municipality of Beirut (with one $billion strong budget) has been trying for a year to produce a film in France and Lebanon to “highlight the solutions followed ( abroad ) to transform waste into energy”, instead of ordering a documentary on the sorting of trash Housewives in Switzerland, where everything is sorted to the oil of frying by the people themselves.

But precisely, this is where the bat hurts, the sorting does not interest the municipality of Beirut, no more than it interests the ministry of the environment and even the government and Lebanese Mps.

Before it’s too late, let’s say No to household garbage incinerators in Lebanon, yes to recycling and reducing the volume of waste.

Personally, I’m totally for the #decay. Otherwise, we must prepare to assume the morbid consequences of the installation of these stove at the bottom of our windows.
