Using the information in the posted reading, “Green Cities and Garbage Death Rays”, develop 3 talking points you would use in a conversation with the land development company, Del Webb to convince them to use a Waste-to- Energy System to power their next large development project.

Possible points to use or approaches to take in building a case: • Reduced transportation costs • Zero emissions from burning trash • Clean energy • Reduced landfill costs & sizes • Reduced methane emissions from

landfills

• Cradle-to-cradle approach – no waste

• Power plants become architectural features of the community

• A cost-based argument • An environmental stewardship

argument • A community asset argument

• Landfills are more toxic than burning.

• Cost of burning vs recycling • Address arguments against

burning trash for energy or discuss only the benefits
