Re: “Hogwashed, Part 2: Environmental Advocates Say Hog Facilities’ Antiquated Waste-Disposal Systems Are Threatening the State’s Waterways

I am reminded of a recent article referring to comments by a NC House member from the heart of hog country:

"Eleven Republicans voted against [House Bill 589], including longtime solar skeptic Rep. Jimmy Dixon, R-Duplin, who has in the past said solar arrays are taking up too much valuable farmland and has sponsored bills requiring studies of what he says is the potential for site contamination due to heavy metals in solar cells a claim solar cell makers say is not factually correct."

Rep. Dixon should be more concerned about "site contamination" from over 110,000 pounds of hog waste per mile per day in Duplin County.
