The Board members of the Mossmorran Action Group have decided to convene an urgent Public Meeting to discuss the current unprecedented flaring at Mossmorran. Date, time and venue will be confirmed asap.
This facebook group has grown from 300-odd members to over a 1000 in a couple of days. Communities as far afield as Dunfermline, Thornton and Kirkcaldy have been reporting health and social impacts on our website (https://mossmorran.org.uk/mossmorran/social-impacts/).
The situation plainly cannot continue. We have apologies from the operators for “inconvenience” and “disruption”, politicians seeking “reassurances” and SEPA monitoring, but these do nothing to acknowledge, let alone stop, the harm being felt by families in their homes and communities from the pollution, noise, light and vibration caused by the plant’s emergency flaring.
The public meeting will be held locally and will be open to all.
As well as local and national media, and all our local representatives (councillors, MSPs and MPs), we will invite the following to give an account of their work on this issue:
Alex Baird, Plant Installation Manager Shell
Larry Jacob McAlister, Director of ExxonMobil Chemical Limited
Terry Hearn, CEO of SEPA
Lesley Laird, MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath, organiser of Mossmorran Working Group
Professor Wilson Sibbett, Chairperson of Mossmorran and Braefoot Bay Independent Air Quality Review Group
Roseanna Cunningham, Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform (Scottish Government),
Jeane Freeman, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport (Scottish Government)
David Green, Health and Safety Executive
