Followed this tractor trailer this evening from Kearneysville, West Virginia To Shepherdstown on Route 480. The same route I traveled to high school for 4 years and the same 5 miles I would jog everyday to Shepherd College (now University) and back home in the evening. I was wondering where those 100 trucks a day that Rockwool says are going to be delivering coal and slag to Kearneysville would be traveling to and from. Rockwool has told us they don't know. How can that be that they are breaking ground, yet don't know where their main materials are coming from. Once again they think we stupid. I think they are lying because if we knew, we be outraged. And I can't think of any road or community that 100 trucks a day of coal and slag would be a welcome. No, Rockwool; you are WRONG, we will not be welcoming you into Jefferson County, WestVirginia. Get your dirty polluting Denmark industry off the face of the earth. Stop telling your clients that your product is green while you pollute with 28 toxic plants in small communities all over the world. #stoptoxicrockwool #pollution #toxic #dirty #documentaryphotography #countryroads #westvirginiaproud #almostheavenwv #countryroadstakemehome #benitakeller #demark #greenliving #denmarkgreenliving #milton #shepherdstownwv #green #goaway #pollutingtheair #pipeline #protectorsoftheearth #jeffersoncountyvision #saveourplanet ##

Stop Toxic Rockwool. Jefferson County, West Virginia, Citizens Against Denmark's Toxic Rockwool During (Sponsor Of ClimateWeekNY), New York City, September 2018. The president of Rockwool tried to intimidate us by making jest that more of our 10,000 members didn't show up to protest them in New York. Well, it was enough to have their lawyers stop us from entering the conference talks even though it was open to the public and even though we had paid our fee. And I find it interesting that less than 9 days after us chanting in the streets of NYC that it happens that Denmark's Official website has been totally redesigned dropping some of the key statements and facts that we question in terms of Denmark being Green while their Rockwell plant is "trying" to build a new high industrial plant across the road from one of our elementary schools. Rockwool will be pouring pollution into the air and burning fossil fuels while Denmark is planning to be fossil free by 2050. Our Chant: "Denmark is green because it exports it's pollution!" #almostheavenwv #saveourair #womenphotographers #ranson #wvtourism #jeffersoncounty #stoptoxicrockwool #epa #Denmark #milton #croatia🇭🇷 #saveourplanet #saveourchildren #blackandwhitephotography #documentaryphotography #streetphotography #climatechange #parisagreement #washingtonpost #forbes #newyorktimes #stoprockwoolwv
